Meyer’s Sidesword (Rappier) – Index of Plays

I just finished the the index of sidesword plays from Meyer’s 1570 text.

Of course the text step is to find (or make) videos of all of the plays. But at least it’s a start. In the mean time, here is a summary of part 2 you may find interesting:

  • Right Ochs 12 Plays (2 in the intro, 10 more under Oberhut)
  • Changing Off 1 Play
  • Gerade Versatzung (Straight Parrying) 24 Plays From, 8 Plays Against
  • Left Underhut (Low Guard) 10 Plays
  • Right Underhut (Low Guard)/Nebenhut (Side Guard) 14 Plays
  • Pflug (Plow) 5 Plays
  • Einlauffen (Running In) 5 Plays
  • Summary 6 Plays
  • Sword and Dagger 17 Plays
  • Sword and Cloak 2 Plays
  • Sword vs. Partisan 5 Plays
