“Prime, Parade. In using prime to parry the thrust in seconde, pass your point over the adversary’s blade, lower it to the waist, keeping your wrist as high as your mouth, nails downward, elbow bent, and body held back as far as possible. The left foot should also be drawn backward a few inches, to remove the body further from the hostile point.” — Chambers, 1881
