Feinting

In Sword and Shield fencing, feinting is a method used to catch your opponent off guard allowing for an opening. A beginning fighter might continuously use feints in his or her fighting but after a time, feinting will become pattern and your opponent will catch on and attack when you feint. Use the feint sparingly, do not rely on it (see figures).

Sword and Shield Combinations

In Sword and Shield, it is often better to combine blocking and advancing with attacks for more success. It’s a difficult to channel these together as most people visualize the left and rights sides as separate rather than together. Use then together, block while advancing and attacking, the advantage can stagger your opponent and make an opening (see figures).
