I am Posta Tutti Porta di Ferro (Full Iron Gate Guard) and I am single. And I am good in armour and without, because I can beat off an attack with a grapple or without. And I can play with the dagger and without, and make my covers.
This guard is a mobile ready postion which is exactly the same as its namesake from the Grappling section.
Keep the hands down low at waist level and be sure to keep the elbows in at all times, and the arms relaxed. This will give them the power from the hips and the speed required to drive them where they need to be.
