Spanish counters to Italian fencing

This is a basic thrusting form we created derived from Pachequistan Destreza. The structure is based on Spanish fencing timing (before, during, & after) and we included second intention attacks by conclusion and circular cut. A more conservative version of the same form would replace the conclusion/circular cut with a thrust of the quarter/half/full circle during the adversary’s defensive movement.
