Great text ! Notably on the versatile use of cuts and thrusts, the important of cuts to create space in case of multiple opponents, and how to fight in battle (the very common French "wait for an attack or a mistake and take your chance on the riposte"), and in a melee (simple exchanges with lots of opponents, because the horses move about).
