Is there any trick to the trial by combat when al-tiair reaches king richards camp?

I dont seem to be able to finish the last section of the mission.

Keep blocking with the short sword and counter attack. Throwing knives are pretty useful here also.

I also recommend dodging when your defense is broken--when an attacker forces your sword up right before they clobber you. Right after you dodge, try a counterattack. And when you send one of your attackers to the ground with a grab-break, attack him on the ground. You have a good chance of killing him with a few blows, though you might take a hit or two from one of the guys still standing. This works better with the long sword than the short one; Altair has a tendency to throw knives when you're using the short sword and attacking a guy on the ground; that's just never worked for me.

Dodge to avoid hits and regain health squares.

Robert will try to grab you. Use grab-break and while he's on the ground, switch to the hidden-blade and jump him to finish him off.

Good luck!
