Tonight at our Godalming Chapter,the smallsword group revised week 1 – drawing the sword, stance, footwork, and the guard and thrust to the inside line in carte. They then moved on to Angelo’s salute, which proved popular, and the thrust in tierce to the outside line and the parade (parry) and riposte to this attack. They also worked on the feather parade, which is a means of pushing your opponent’s point off line or even possibly disarming them by pressing and sliding your sword against and down their blade.
