— Do not strangle the grip—hold it firmly but lightly in your palm.
— The blade curves: the edge is rigid, but the flat is flexible. Learn to feel your sword's range of motion.
— Your sword is not the weapon, it is only the point of the weapon. Your entire body is the weapon, and it must move as one.
— You expose yourself only when you attack—but if you do not attack, you cannot hit.
— The strongest slash is with the forte of the blade.
— Move always, defending with stop thrusts, parries, backsteps, and sidesteps. To stand still is to die.
— Know your lunge range—and your opponent's. Learn to sense it without looking down.
