Translation

THE VIRTUE OF THE SINGLE SWORD.

  1. You must know that the single sword is the queen and foundation of all other weapons, yea, that to delight therein is as, and more useful than to do so in others; because more securely does one learn to parry, strike, and cover the body, disengage the sword, counterdisengage, gain the sword against the adversary in all the guards; and during all the aforesaid effects, you will be careful to hold your arm well extended, because you will come to deflect all your adversary’s blows at a distance from your body.
