(Patrick's Notes) This is a list of the stances we practised:
From high to low
- Vom Tag (from the Roof / Day)
- Lincks or Recht or Overhead (which I think we wound up calling "Oberhut")
- Kron (Crown) It's listed in Meyer as a strike (Kronhau) made from a low guard (e.g. Pflug) in response to and Oberhau and leading to a short-edge cut.
- Ochs (Ox)
- Langort (Longpoint)
- Eisenport (Irongate)
- Pflug (Plow) One thing about this is that Meyer seems to classify left or right based on which foot is forward (http://www.schielhau.org/Meyer.p6.html). Hence, when in Pflug Lincks your sword is on your right hand side.
- Alba (Fool)
- Wechsel (Changer) For some reason we've got mixed-up and called this "Schrankhut (http://www.schielhau.org/Meyer.p8.html
Nebenhut (Close Guard)
Two we might want to add:
- Zornhut (Wrath guard) The guard from which one exectues a Zornhau (Wrath cut)
- Schrankhut (Barrier guard) Seems to be a variant of Ochs where the point is low, somewhat like Silver's "True guardant"
Three more important terms:
- Oberhau (Over cut): A downward cut
- Mittlelhau (Middle cut): A horizontal cut
- Unterhau (Under cut): An upwards cut
