Angelo on Elasticity and Recovery

You ought to practice not only to make your thrusts with great quickness and vivacity, but also to deliver them with an elastic disengagement and disposition; and the motion of the body should appear like divers [sic] springs throughout the whole frame. It is very essential to recover from your thrusts in the same lively manner, to enable you to parry in case of a return, or riposte.

Angelo, 1787:22
