    This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1840 Excerpt: ...so to a tall man (even in every part of the body) when engaged with another of lesser stature, or length of arm, as he will be out of his opponents' reach, whilst the latter may be within his. The power of defence does not consist so much in your own strength of position, as in effecting a decided quick movement in that direction, in which your opponent has the least power of resistance, especially in defending against the Point, when the First, Third, and Fifth Guards are the most effective against the First and Third point; and the Second, Fouth, and Sixth Guards, against the Second point; provided the wrist is previously so placed, that the requisite Guards may be quickly executed. The two Parries must also be regulated by the position of the opponent's wrist, so that the bearing of your sword may tend to open his hand, and, if well judged and timely given, will disarm him; or so cripple his wrist, as to preclude even the capability of forming a defensive guard, or continuing the attack. If opposed to the small sword, have recourse to the cuts Three and Four, directing them at the arm, by which means there is every probability of the cuts taking effect, as it must always, in thrusting, come within range of the Edge, before the point can be sufficiently advanced to reach the body. If the above cuts are quickly given and continued, they will also be found advantageous in advancing against the small sword, as they form an Attack and Defence at the same instant; but should the opponent be the most skilful and quickest, then it is best to retire while forming them, cautiously preserving the proper distance, so that each cut may just reach the fore part of his arm. The Second Point, if delivered as a first movement, should be given with great caution, the wris.
