Alber ("Fool's Guard") is one of the Vier Leger ("four guards") taught by Johannes Liechtenauer and promoted by his students. It is called the Half Iron Door by Fiore de'i Liberi.

Alber is formed by placing one foot forward, and the point of the longsword towards the ground between one's self and one's opponent with the short edge upward. It is used to encourage opponents to attack so that their blows may be displaced.
