Vadi & leverage

Postby Vive la France ! » 30 Aug 2006 10:23

Hello,

I have heard by some that one of the main characteristic of Vadi's style is his use of the leverage.
What do you think about it ?

Can you be more specific? Everyone uses leverage don't they? Maybe it's a reference to the difference of some of his guards to Fiore's?

Michael,
what part of Vadi do you refer to, longsword? As far as dagger is concerned, he doesn't use wrestling more than Fiore and the Germans, thankfully. The other part of Vadi that I study, the spear, is much about counterattacking from an invite.

I have heard this by people who should have learn it through aemma belgium's workshops, so i believe it comes from eamma mother group.
I don't know exactly what they mean by this, but i am puzzled because as far as i know, every style have to use leverage at a point and i wonder how Vadi could use it more than the other ?

Not referring to favouring longer hilts, is it?

Strangely, while the pictures in Vadi show pretty long hilts, his text says that the grip should be a hand-span, which isn't particularly long.

Michael, if I had to bet money on one option, it would be that they are talking crap :).

In fact, i have the impression that they want to say that Vadi use leverage to make some effect on his own sword (like a zwerchau), or on the opponent's sword (like maybe in a winden).
The problem is that one almost can't fence without using leverage...

But saying that Vadi use leverage more than the other don't ring any bell to you.

Well... he does have Posta Sagitarria, which is kind of like a low Fenestra (Marozzo has something similar) -

I'm largely unfamiliar with aemma interpretations, that is to say that I know nothing about them. What you report is a third hand statement, so I wouldn't venture saying it's the official intepretation, the statement itself remains a mistery to me.
