When he binds with outstretched blade against your sword, react as soon as he makes contact, rapidly disengage and change under and through, quickly flick past on the other side of his blade with your Strong and strike to his ear. From this following through there are many good hits, think about them. Attack once in the pre-fencing from under, then strike him high on his sword, and see that you cross in front and come under his blade where he cannot meet you soundly with the Strong, and let your sword reach far and high under his hanging blade, strike him thus with your quillons under you so that you can put your sword into a half cut to his head.
(This is an instruction to disengage under, match plane and strike upward.)
