41. Fourth Scholar of the Third Master Remedy

Pisani-Dossi MS 08b-c.png

Here I believe I will throw you to the ground.
First I will do this to you, and then I will do worse to you.

Here begin the plays of the reverse strikes,[1] through which countless men have lost their lives. And the plays of my scholars will follow, demonstrating the cover made with the right hand. This play depicted is easy to do, and in this way I will throw this man into the ground.

[In the Getty, this Scholar is the Master.]

Cod.1324 34v-c.jpg

You’ll go to the ground by the backhand,
By this play your life is lost.

Cod.10799 238r.jpg

A good wrestle using the dagger, for when someone strikes at you from above with the dagger, so you grab under his strike and seize his arm close to the hand and the dagger: and pull his arm strongly over your chest and place the left leg behind his right leg and break him over with the left arm and hand by his left shoulder with the hand over your right leg behind the back of his, and have his right arm with the dagger tightly by the hand in front of your chest, so does he fall.
