Guard 2. Stand at ease, feet apart, and hold the stick with both hands, each hand near the corresponding tip, symmetrically, palms facing toward you (Fig. 10.
Guard 3. Assuming that you wish to take a left guard 3, step back with the right foot and hold the stick on the right side, parallel to the ground, left hand forward, palm facing either away from you or toward you, right hand near the right thigh, palm facing toward you. Your left-hand grip should be light and it is used to guide the stick forward during a thrust toward a target by the action of the right hand (Figs. 11, 12).
