Mutieren (mutieren, mutirn, mutiren, transmuting) is one of the 17 Hauptstucke in the recital of Johannes Liechtenauer, and means an attack from the bind, which is used against an opponent who is soft on the sword, and in which the combatant winds over his opponent’s blade to thrust low. This technique is typically discussed in tandem with duplieren which is also typically regarded as two tempo thrust in opposition from the bind.
