              Mix in w/ other steps                                        Break tempo, variety


              Vary targets; tip first                                      useful when opp. can't react
              Only fingers! Small; keep hand aimed; finish before touch    End of most offensive actions; diseng. w/ line
              Stable hand (fingers only); vary lines, timing               Make opening; test/provoke reaction
              beat vs. early part, opposition vs. finish of attack         Prepare riposte
              blade, not arm; must be realistic (sudden; target)           Elicit parry (prepares line change - attack)



                                                                           opportunity; invitation
             vary distances, timing; be careful of foot tempo              test reactions, conceal intentions
             keep forearm back as well                                     keeps all lines safe
ump back, etc.                                                             open eyes decisions
             coord. w/ blade action                                        test/provoke reaction


              close range; expl. or accel. lunge                           one tempo, first intention; plan for opp's reaction
              close range; expl. or accel. lunge; slow search fast beat?   strong beat to make opening; soft for reaction
              open range; vary speed; slow develop, accel. finish          can be open eyes, but have a plan
              flex elbow; lead w/ tip;                                     when opp. steps forward for compound riposte
              vs. feint, beat, or other prep--v. quick                     interrupt opp's offense
              Only when you can't be touched! i.e. w/ distance parry       pick off opp.'s mistakes
              vs. countertime; compound attack in prep                     deceive opp.'s 2nd int. countertime parry


              never the same one twice in a row                            use to prepare riposte
              straight arm/blade palm down, elusive tip                    stop opp's attack; set up indir. att. or parry-rip
              w/ appel, then continue back                                 force opp. to finish OR set up attack in prep
              w/ retreats; slow search - fast take                         flush comp. attack into final line for real parry-rip


              shorter, med. speed attack; fast parry-rip                   2nd intention or open eyes
              small but inviting prep at open distance                     2nd intention--don't change mind
