This week at Crossing Fight School, we’ll resume our look at Fencing from the Sweeps, the addendum thought to be from Andre Paurenfeyndt. We began with some simple techniques from lower guards, and that theme will continue, as we look at ways to both bait and deceive our opponents.

Paurenfeyndt has a text all his own, and though it’s not an extensive one, there are some familiar devices and some good general advice within it. I’m in the process of sorting out and interpreting the plays, so it seems like we will eventually be examining that material in the weeks ahead.

See you all on Sunday.
