What's the word for brandishing a sword in a circle?

Asked by andrew (16346points) April 24th, 2009

It starts with an M, if I remember correctly. It’s a parry-attack move, primarily used with a broadsword or a two-handed sword.

@Dog – That is a bit intriguing. Perhaps he will share, or perhaps it is a private matter.

Wow, that was breathtakingly stupendous.

He choreographed the whole thing himself, too. My niece is also a pretty rad singer.

@YARNLADY Dorkily enough I am certified in a variety of weapons for stage combat. Oh, MFA, you have so many uses.

Aw, thanks for the love, bro. He’s so proud of himself and is just preening that people think he’s good. Of course I and Mom think so, but we’re biased. Not bad for an 8 year old, eh?
