This week at Crossing Fight School, we’ll take a look at the bastard of the 5 Hidden Hews, the Scheitelhau. Dismissed, maligned, and misunderstood, this cut is thought by many to be almost useless, but it does have its applications (as we will see).

Ringeck only devotes 2 plays to the Scheitelhau, so in addition to it, we’ll also be looking at one of my absolute favorite techniques from the Hauptstucke, none other than Abschneiden. 🙂

The slice is among the more satisfying techniques to pull off, and certainly requires a bit of situational awareness, as opportunities to execute it are often unplannned. There are occasions, however, when you can anticipate a chance to employ it, and we will examine a few of them during this class.

See you all on Sunday.
