Another movement of Swordsmanship relating to The Low Guard stance, The Complete Low Guard movement was a variation of The Middle stance previously mentioned. As such, the basic body positioning was identical. However, The Sword was positioned low and off either the Left or Right Hip, angled downward. The “True” of The Blade was still placed downward – but the blade body was presented flat and facing towards The Enemy. From This position a Swordsman could make strikes or blocks primarily from the foot to the waist. The Complete Low Center position was actually ideal for attacking a charging or mounted Horseman.
