Do Zucken to the hits,
if you want to fool the masters.
When he wants to bind on you,
do Zucken quickly, so you will find him.

Here the Master says how you shall do the Zucken with the Messer. The Zucken is a main piece and it is manifold. It is to be used against those fencers who bind strongly against the Messer and who displace strongly. When you want to fool and deceive these masters, do the Zucken against them. So get into the bind at his Messer with an Entrüsthau on his left side. Indes strike with the same strike at his right side. When the Messers clash, indes pull back the arm slightly, transfer the strike into a thrust and thrust at his face on his left side with the Zucken.

  Let the Messer go through and strike at his right upper opening again with the true or back edge. What Durchgehen means you will be taught hereafter. Be aware to do the Durchgehen according to my notions because it means something different with the Messer than with the sword. top

68r

  Strike strongly at his head from the right side. When he comes up and wants to displace, pull your Messer against you before he binds on it and thrust at the other opening on the other side. Do this at any hit of the Messers. top

68v

 

When he binds at your Messer and then waits if you want to withdraw or pull your Messer, then stay at the Messer, pull your Messer at you below with the edge and thrust again along the Messer at his face or his chest. When you want to do the Zucken, you must always wind your Messer against his, making the true edge face up, as you have heard before.

If you don't hit him properly with the thrust, then work on with the Duplieren or another good piece.
