the position three. Now he’s going to go to the position four. There. If he’s a little
too wide, he can correct that eventually. Then, position five, that protects the head.
Position three protects the flank, position four protects the chest. Alright, now we’re
going to demonstrate it with thrust and cut. Back off a little over here and look at me,
Bob. Alright, so we’re standing this close, here I go., and he immediately reposts. I
go to the head. See, I tried to cut, but it was late. Now I’m going to go here to his
flank, ah he’s reaching out again, just keep it there. Again. Good, now back up a little
bit, can we do that. Right there. Now, if I do this it’s not good enough, I have to
move forward. That’s what tells you the attack is happening. See? That wasn’t a real attack.
