Spanish fencing article published

On the A Midsummer Night's Blog, Puck has published an article on the Spanish defensive technique called the Atajo.

Puck writes:

From a classical fencing perspective it is similar to an engagement, parry, or blade seizure with some key differences that can potentially lead an interpreter astray. From a historical perspective it could be considered theoretically similar to the Italian finding of the sword (trovare di spada).
