This week on DuelloTV: Green cords (level 1) are moving into the strategic side of the rapier with classes on Stringere and responding to the opponent, Blues (level 2) focus on the foundation of the Deceptive Fight, and Reds (level 3) on contra-tempo and how to defeat it. For our longsword focus we are moving into our second class on precision, looking at how to throw a fendente from all poste. We also have an excellent partner exercise to share that will help practitioners of any discipline explore how to put individual techniques into the grander context of a full fight.
Green Cord (Level 1)
With the tools of finding and gaining under your belt you can now press your opponent into a position of strategic weakness. This week’s classes look at the concept of stringere or “constraint” as a tool for forcing your opponent into predictable reactions and how to exploit those reactions.
Blue Cord (Level 2)
This week’s videos look at the mechanics of the feint, a deceptive fight action designed to draw your opponent out of position with a false attack.
Red Cord (Level 3)
Exercise of the Week
