Doce Methodos defines strikes and attacks by angle, energy,  weapon anatomy (strikes with the edge, point, back of blade and butt) and manipulation. Knowlege of the tactics and techniques of the Doce Methodos transfer to all weapon categories and allows one to effectively employ any weapon (edged, impact, flexible, projectile) and combination of weapons (double, long and short) in combat.  The advanced systems of Contradas, Contra-Tirsia, Doble-Dos, and Advanced Combat Methods all likewise transfer in application to all weapons.
