Created by a man nicknamed the Bonebreaker, a seventh-level swordsman of the Western Circle of Swordfighters, in order to defeat his opponent on the shores of Scotland's Loch Shiel. A circumstantial move to be used against opponents who like to riposte with a slash to the shoulders.
1. Start in "Defensive" stance: The point of your saber is forward and facing your opponent, and angled at their chest. The arms are extended forward but with a slight bend at the elbows. Hips are square to the opponent and shoulders are relaxed. The legs are slightly bent with your dominant foot forward, the same side as your dominant hand. Both feet are angled outward as if you are walking a tightrope. In The Path of the Jedi, this is called the "Jedi Neutral" stance.
2. Make a full circle behind the head to deliver a descending cut at an angle at the opponent's shoulder.
3. When the blade is moving in front of you, make a passing step forward.
4. If the opponent defends the attack by moving out of distance or parries the blow and attempts to deliver a riposte with a shoulder cut, quickly raise the blade high at an angle so that the opponent's blade is deflected down.
5. Make a side step to the opponent's vulnerable side (the opposite side of their weapon) while delivering another full circle cut to the opponent's head. Make sure to only side-step when the blade is in front of you and can defend a blow.
6. As the blade is about to land, pivot the back foot so that the body is at an oblique angle to the opponent, further distancing yourself from a counterattack.
7. Raise the blade again in a hanging guard to ward against any other blows.
