  Guardia di lioncorno

To get positioned into the guardia di lioncorno, so called because in this ward the sword hangs from above downwards just like the horn of this animal, it is convenient to hold the sword arm raised high, so that its point plunges right toward the enemy’s face, and likewise the buckler shall be pushed far toward the same target; as for the feet, we could bring forward the right or the left at our leisure.
