More specific in the verse:

‘If you stike an oberhau from the right and if you  want to end the fight, note: when he displace,inntediately strike around with the Zwerchhau. Grab the blade of your sword with the left hand and thrust into his face  or attack one of the other openings you can reach best.’


‘ If you thrust at his face at the halbschwert and he dispalce this, immediately strike him on the other sideof the head with the pommel or jump with right foot behind his left, move your pommel around his neck, from the right shoulder and tear him down over your right leg.’


Αt the next hour we work on the first Meyer’s stucke from Zornhut.

More specific in the verse:

‘In the Approach when you come into the Wrath Guard, then as soon as you can reach him, step and deliver a swift Wrath Cut at his left ear, which he must then parry; afterwards quickly deliver a Low Cut opposite it at his lower right opening; thus you have now laid on. Meanwhile, before he gathers himself to work, and gathers his arms for the stroke, then fall with your sword below on his arm, and thus hinder his course so that he cannot work. Then before he knows it, shove him away from you with a sudden jerk, so that he falters as if he were going to fall, and strike meanwhile to his nearest opening, which you will then surely have.’
