A secondary strike in Meyer's system. This blow parries with the Kron guard and attacks to the high openings.
The canonical application of the Kronhauw is described as follows:
- Stand in Pflug
- When the opponent attacks from above, go up to Kron to catch their blade on the crossguard.
- Lift the pommel high and cut down with the false edge either straight down or on an angle to his head almost like a Sturtzhauw or descending zwerch, keeping his blade on your crossguard or schilt.
In which the 'student' demonstrates their knowledge to the 'teacher'.
