Classed as a “Bicorno”, this stance is used as both a potential block or parry movement. It is used from a distance of 4 to 6-feet from an Opponent. The blade is gripped in a Full Grasp, and held slightly below The Center Mass of a Swordsman. The Pommel is placed eith against the skin of several inches off. The Blade is held, Edge (or “True”) down. The Elbows are positioned in such a way as to allow The Swordsman to thrust outward or parry (block) – Left or Right, depending. The Legs are positioned with the Right Leg out (for power) with the Left being used for stability. In another variation of The Bicorno, using the same blade positioning – the Sword Blade is positioned flat. From this position, The Swordsman can either slash Left to Right or again, thrust outwards. The Mid-Block/Lunge is also used with other positions of blocking or attack.
