Practice with the Rappier.  The blades here are clearly more slender and
tapering than the Schwertd in other plates.
Note on the far left the unarmed man disarming his opponent.
In the background another disarm between two rapier fighters, notice the weapon
being forced behind the lead knee and the use of the pommel against the elbow. 
In the middle an apaprent slash isblocked by a dagger and a thrust made. In the foreground two thrust
are set asie with dagger parries.  Notice the long stepping lunges in the center left and
left foreground (common even in 1570).  Note also again the light slipper-like footwear.
