Espada y Daga

Espada y Daga involves edged weapons training were the margin for error is minimal with precise footwork becoming essential and the characteristics of the weapon needing to be understood for it to be an effective implement. Espada y daga meaning sword and knife are techniques more likely to start in long range, taking into account the attributes of the sword and only bringing in the use of the knife when a combination of initial defences and zoning towards a safer affective angle makes it possible. It is important to understand the characteristics of the weapon principle as the characteristics of the sword are very different from the stick therefore certain movements of the stick are not as effective when applied with the sword and visa versa.
