Rules and conventions follow next, then blade work; which leads to an explanation of the difference between guards and lines and the characteristics of the hit, then engagements. The four basic options for simple attacks are described in detail. Next follows an explanation of parrying options involving different lines. Blade preparations are followed by counter ripostes.

Counter attacks are followed by counter-time, and then renewed attacks. Fencing opposite handers and free fighting, finishes this sequence.
