Two techniques again. The first is a very badly drawn counter to the "scissors" technique on this plate.

My first interpretation was that this shows a counter to the previous technique on plate 173, based on the use of "uszgangen" (going out): take over the dagger in the other hand so you can free your arm. (You could also drop the dagger, presumably, but that's stupid.)

In my second interpretation, I perform a counterlock against his elbow:

Actually, both of these are incorrect, as the caption explicitely calls it a counter to das fahenn, another term for the scissors. For a more recent interpretation, see here.

 The second technique is the "scissors": receive the attack with crossed wrists, then enclose his arm and pull down. This is rather painful for the attacker.
