This drill establishes the four most critical (because hardest to distinguish) crossing conditions, all of which happen middle to middle.

From the perspective of the one who executes the plays:

1: sword goes wide: which leads to the 2nd play of the second master of zogho largo

2: sword stays close, no pressure in the bind: 3rd play of the second master of zogho largo

3: swords are close, some pressure in the bind but inside line stays open: 2nd play of the master of zogho stretto.

4: swords are close, more pressure in the bind, closing inside line and opening the outside: 3rd play of the master of zogho stretto.
