Parrying Dagger
Time Period: 16-17th century
Location: Europe
Common Construction: Steel

Parrying dagger is a general term for daggers that are designed to be wielded in the left hand in conjunction with another sword or dagger in the primary hand. These daggers usually have a strong hilt capable of parrying a blow from a light sword such as a rapier, and some also have a guard to protect the hand. As parrying daggers evolved, some even had ways to catch or break an opponent's sword. The most commonly known is the lever in the guard which deploys two more blades at 30 degree angles when pressed. A twist of the dagger would disarm or break the sword of an opponent and leave him defenseless.

Uaah... the knife looks pretty neat [of cousre the other ones do as well, but I have no comparison with the original image in those cases]. Especially compared to my own one... *cough*

Hi Matt, I too occasionally get my golkaeepers to say catch as the ball hits the hands. It definitely stops them going through the motions'Your idea of positioning an attacking player nearby is smart. Another idea: if you have a 6 shot handling drill, only allow them to finish if they have made a one touch save on all 6. Any spills means a restart. Then scale it up.It can frustrate the heck out of them, but it forces good habits and upon completion they get a real sense of accomplishment.

Excellent post,I occasionally have my goplreeaeks say the word, catch when the ball hits the palms. The extra focus on the process seems to help some. Any other tips out there to help goplreeaeks become a One touch Keeper? I also like to position attacking players close to the working GK. It adds an urgency in preventing spills. http://mwqhaxoa.com [url=http://qmoxmkhqp.com]qmoxmkhqp[/url] [link=http://ugvkhz.com]ugvkhz[/link]
