Throwing Sottani.

Open to public view.

I have a question.

I commonly do true edge sottani from di coda longa into what looks like an extended, front weighted Fenestra.

Is there anything wrong with this?
All I can know is what exists.

No :).
Fiore doesn't explicitly describe that move, but he doesn't say not to do it either... And I think it's a pretty basic and universal move.

I like swords more than you.

Hi Folks,

My view is if it is a guard position then you can either start in it or end in it or go through it on the way to another position, with your weight either forward, behind or in the middle.

So yes it is valid and possible.
