In Fencing, an action similar to the disengage or counter-parry. However, the circular motion is initiated not with the intention to avoid a parry, but instead to take the opponent's blade out of a line. One must be within fencing distance to begin the move. Done properly, this will result in prise de fer, leaving one's opponent completely open for a leisurely attack. Otherwise, the opponent disengage and likely thrust, because Envelopement does not gain Right-of-way.

This move is generally not recommended for beginners, as it takes a familiarity with your opponents' reactions that can only be developed on the piste. Must like the flick, it's no use trying if you can't do it well.

(Unlike the flick, it won't hurt like the Dickens if a neophyte fails the action on you.)
