Antonio Manciolino says strike that hand

The wounding of the hand, not of the enemy, is registered in the account of blows in play. Because the hand is the chief in exposing itself, thus in combat for earnest it is the most singular wound, because that member of the enemy must be offended which offends more than others, and this is the hand. 
Antonio Manciolino, Opera Nova 1531
