The first counter-riposte can be used as an act of second intention. In Figure 22, after perceiving that the opponent tends to respond automatically with a parry of quarte and direct riposte, the fencer lunges with the sword arm fully extended but loose and relaxed. The defender forms a parry and commences the riposte but, being anticipated, it falls into the quarte parry taken on the lunge by the original attacker.

Direct hits may also be launched from ‘absence of blades’ and in this case it is absolutely essential to have impeccable timing.

These opportune moments usually manifest themselves when the opponent is either (1) preparing an attack, (2) recovering from an attack or riposte, or (3) recovering from an exploration or preparation.
