- What the right Iron Door is, which you will find out should you go farther
onto Rapier Fencing, that while it is used in stabbing with the Sword as by us
Germans, this guard is also easily deflected and sent to the ground. Although at
this time it is used by the Italians and other nations, it covers like the
Barrier Guard, and so of the Iron Door no further report is therefore required.
- There is a basic underlying division, and here I will shortly clarify both,
and so will now describe the Iron Door. Stand with your right foot forward, hold
your sword with the grip in front of the knee, with straightly hanging arms,
that your point stands upward out at your opponent's face. In addition, keep
your Sword in front of you to shut like an iron door, and when you stand with
feet wide and so come to lower your body, you can clear all strikes and stabs
out and away from you.
