Stepping Off-line from Alber


…works really well for me. Especially when I use the false edge to hit the trailing edge of my opponent’s blade, giving it extra momentum in the direction it was already going. If I do this especially well and they were already throwing a full cut then their blade ends up in the ground.

After the step, whether or not I needed to parry, I throw a crooked strike (Traversato?) at the arms.

What do you like to do from Alber or  [Coda Lunga|Porta di Ferro] Larga?
