Capoferro Plate 27
PLACEHOLDER -- Image
Note:The following tables in Italian fencing notation should be considered an interpretation and not the final word on Capoferro's technique.
|Assumes the F posture
(The image indicates the E posture, but the describing text reads “low 4th, sword withdrawn and dagger high and extended”. I recommend looking at both variations.)
|First Movement: From the C posture with the dagger at the wrist, simulates an attack to the inside high line over the opponent's dagger in 3rd, keeping the dagger in place|
|Parries upward with the dagger and counterattacks with the rapier in either 4th or 2nd||Second Movement: Eludes the dagger parry with an attack by disengagement clockwise to the inside line in 4th, simultaneously parrying with the dagger|
|Receives the Touch|
