FLOWING WITH THE OPPONENT'S MOMENTUM

Traveling Dragon Sword

It is important to go with the opponent's momentum when using a sword

Unlike with a saber which you may use to block or deflect, you do not clash your dainty sword with an opponent's weapon. Hence, it is of utmost importance that you have agile footwork and correct spacing to avoid the opponent's attacks. Never, for example, go directly into the momentum of your opponent.
