94v a English smoothed

  • Running through, and about wrestling.
  • Use this technique against opponents who run in and wrestle to avoid wounds and strikes
  • Practice this other method for them.
  • When your opponent shifts your attack, and wants to attack (with?) arms high and conquer you with upper body strength,
  • raise your arms quickly, and lift the node of the sword above your head with your left hand,
  • then draw your sword tightly and incline it through the back, and thrust your head through under his arms toward the side,
  • then advance your right foot and place it behind their right, and leap into them,
  • so that you encircle the body of the opponent from the left side with your right arm,[^4]
  • and you can throw them with your right hip so they land on their head.

94v a notes

  • [^1]: [1](rendering based on Logeion definition), supported by DMLBS and Lewis and Short-- L&S say it's from a Greek word for writhing
  • [^2]: 11-12, 13-14: phrases split by [an unnecessary] comma, potentially to avoid long lines?
  • [^3]: leap, jump, move suddenly/spasmodically, jerk, spurt...
  • [^4]: 16-17 order reversed for englishification
  • lines 1-2: the German basically has "use this against people who run in," no extra detail

  9. and sink yourself downward a certain amount,

94v b notes

  • [^5]: phrase about foot placement split by extra comma
  • [^6]: The abdomen below the ribs. He uses a different word for "loins" below, so this one couldn't be loins.
  • [^7]: There are a series of directional doublings in this text (anterius+praeponas; in+inieceris; retorsum+reijcito).
  • [^8]: There are a series of repeated verb stems in the Latin that are almost impossible to repeat in an English translation: incurrerit+transcurras = run in+run through; inieceris+reijcito = throw inward+throw backwards
