GIRARD THIBAULT D ANVERS PDF

Biografia[ modifica modifica wikitesto ] I dettagli sulla vita di Thibault sono scarsi, derivati dal suo libro e dal suo album amicorum. Una squadra di maestri incisori furono impiegati per produrre illustrazioni per tutti i quarantaquattro capitoli del trattato, contenente circa da dodici a quindici coppie di spadaccini per ogni illustrazione istruttiva. Questa lunghezza della lama corrisponde anche al raggio del cerchio di Thibault. Impugnatura della spada[ modifica modifica wikitesto ] Thibault descrisse un metodo unico di impugnare la spada che consente molte delle sue altre innovazioni. Thibault utilizza questa impugnatura per il taglio e per la difesa a distanza ravvicinata.

Biography[ edit ] Watercolor by Torrentius in the album amicorum of Thibault, incl. A team of master engravers were employed to produce plates for all forty-four chapters of the treatise, containing about twelve to fifteen pairs of swordsmen per instructional plate.

These plates contain a wide variety of intricate backgrounds and costumes which appear to be purely decorative. He discussed at great length the precise geometric relationships between opposing swordsmen, always stressing the importance of natural proportion.

For example, if the swordsman were to stand with his feet together and arm extended but not locked straight upward and pointing his index finger, then the diameter of the circle would be equal to his height as measured from the soles of his feet to his extended finger. This allows for a kind of geometric shorthand, whereby Thibault can simply refer to a location by the nearest intersection in the diagram. Although many of his contemporaries provided instruction in the use of offhand weapons, Thibault only gave instruction in the use of a single weapon, believing it capable of defeating all other weapons and weapon combinations.

Thibault gives proportional measurements for the various components of the hilt, each based on his circle diagram. Gripping the sword[ edit ] Thibault described a unique method of gripping the sword which allows for many of his other innovations.

The blade is thus aligned horizontally when the arm is extended. Thibault uses this grip for cutting and for defending at close range. Thibault argues in favor of a "natural" stance, similar to an ordinary posture while standing or walking. This involves holding the feet several inches apart, at an angle of roughly 45 degrees to one another.

Thibault describes the placement of the feet in relation to an imaginary line drawn between a swordsman and his opponent Thibault calls this line the " diameter ". This positioning of the front foot allows you to walk into the subjection. Both shoulders are held in alignment and fully profiled to the opponent. The sword arm, normally extended but not locked, is also in alignment with the shoulders. The rear arm remains largely unused in order to maintain this profile, with the rear arm extended and the hand pointing downward and back.

How the opponent responds to this is then gauged by sensitivity, Thibault identifying several different pressures of sentiment and the correct way to enter against them.
