When the Crossing is Lost – Practice

Immediate Practice

5 minutes – Review the three crossing distances with your partner.

  • Stand across from your partner and make a crossing where your blades intersect at the debole, at the mezza spada, and at the forte.
  • Review what it looks like to both have the advantages and for your partner to have the advantages.
  • Make sure you both agree on what those circumstances look like.

5 minutes – Identify 3 reasons that you might arrive at each crossing distance.

  • In what circumstance would you end up with the points of your swords crossed?
  • … the mezza spada?
  • … the forte?
  • We will explore more of this in subsequent lessons but it is interesting to learn more about these crossings through personal exploration.
