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. The attacker then ripostes in turn (counter-riposte) at the now exposed target of the defender.
Direct hits may also be launched from ‘absence of blades’ and in this case it is absolutely essential to have impeccable timing. Such a direct attack must utilise the precise moment that the opponent is incapable, hesitant or distracted. The execution of a simple direct attack must be exactly that – simple – with no extraneous action of blade, hand or foot, nor any deviation from the line of attack. 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.
