Bastardsword against kneeling

This film shows how you can attack and kill a kneeling sword and shield opponent.

The trick is to move the shield aside, this is done by thrusting hard on the shield corner, thereby moving the shield aside opening up for a face or body thrust. You can also feint a thrust first to move the shield up.

Be careful with the face thrust in the face.

Follow the sword

This film shows how to get inside your opponents guard in a clever way. The idea is to follow the opponents sword, ider on topside or bottom side. Its really hard for your opponent to know if he should do a high or low block against such a blow. This can be done on a pell too, if you put up a plank or rope to simulate the sword line.
