To be "Soft" at the sword can have a number of meanings. Typically it means that the fencer is applying insufficient strength to their blade and is easily pushed aside or displaced.

Often someone soft in the bind fails to cover their line and is easily set aside with techniques such as Absetzen.

Sometimes being Soft is conflated with being Weak in the bind, though this is often a misattribution of terminology, with weak typically referring to mechanical advantage instead of force applied.

Determining if someone is soft in the bind is a matter of Fuhlen and should result in a decision made Indes.
