Se tu non ua cum questo bastoncello in tera
Non credero may che questa arte sia uera.
If you don't go to the ground with this baton
I cannot believe that this art is untrue.

Interpretation: This last transitional play with baton depicts the baton again as a tool for taking down the zugadore. The second line of the couple conveys to the reader that the techniques will work in most if not all cases, and that Fiore refuses to believe that that art is incapable of addressing any abrazare situation.

Application: The scholler using the baton, is depicted as inserting the baton between the legs of the zugadore while grabbing the base of the neck of the zugadore and pushing back and liftinng with the baton. This will result in creating a significant imbalance on the part of the zugadore resulting in a throw to the ground onto the zugadore's back.
