Fabris Lesson Plan for Plate 3 & Chapter 3/4

Review the first guard.

Discuss the divisions of the sword. Focus on the specifics that Fabris offers. (Maybe compare & contrast with other systems.)

Discuss the features of the withdrawn seconda (plate 3).

[students assume the posture, practice walking as well]

Discuss the openings that the withdrawn seconda present and how to protect them

[students assume the posture again, correcting flaws]

Introduce the concept of the counter-posture from chapter 4. Note the specifics, especially how a properly formed counter-posture doesn’t require an active parry.

[Practice the defenses indicated in the text. Note out Seconda acts as a counter-posture on the outside, while an active parry is needed on the inside.]
