I have searched the forum but can't seem to quite find the right answer to this. I just want to confirm if, in foil, an attack lands, and the defender parries AFTER the attack lands, and ripostes in enough time such that there's two lights, then the attacker would be awarded the point. Is this right? My understanding is that even if the parry is intentional etc, one can't "deflect" the blade if the blade has already landed. Someone at my club had this happen (he was the one attempting the parry) and he was under the impression that if he can parry and riposte quick enough such that there's two lights, the parry riposte would be "in time", and thus take precedence. I imagine he was comparing it to situations where If you hit first, but your opponent hits you afterwards BUT they have priority - quick enough to get two lights - they get the attack, and yours is the counterattack, even if you hit "first", since if there's two lights, both are in time. He seemed to be applying that to parry/riposte scenario. My feeling was it ISN'T a parry once the point lands, and thus not a riposte, but I'm happy to be corrected! And secondly, would this count as a "malparry" or "late parry" or any such term that I've heard thrown around? and thirdly, with all this talk of who hit first, it makes me wonder, did Han Solo even have priority or was it Greedo's attack?
