Manciolino’s Sword and Large Buckler: Coda Lunga e Alta 3

The third play is similar to the first. Like the first play, you’ll pass to his left with your right foot, your left foot immediately following behind. At the same time you’ll thrust into his side.


For your defense, you’ll recover by passing back with the right foot. Again, you’ll return to Code Lunga e Alta.

There is no parry

It is rather hard to believe, but the initial defense in this action is entirely based around range control and footwork. The thrust does not oppose the opponent’s blade in this action.

Why to I make that claim? Because we’ll see a counter-thrust using the true edge in opposition in the fifth play.
