Getting the hang of picturing the cavazioni (disengages with opposition) to the outside and inside lines. I have to remember that, with rapier, you must always angle the blade so as to catch theirs in the bind.

I expect I will need to read this several times. It took time and practice before the early lessons started to click, but once they did it was clear how solid the lessons and the approach was. A few more times and I'll get it.
