The Squinting strikeSchilhau

The Squinting strike is a long strong and swiftly executed master strike that breaks the Plow and several strikes and thrusts.

Like the Thwart strike you perform a middle strike with the short edge of your weapon but now you straighten your right arm driving the point towards the opponent. Before and during this strike you squint at a different part of the opponents body then where you are striking, giving this strike its name.

Use the squinting strike against opponents that fight short against you. It is especially useful against opponents that use the Plow or Change through.
