flat arc

Does anyone know what a flat arc is? It was found in the description of a movement made with a blade/sword:"he flipped his sword to his left hand, swept it around in a flat, vicious arc"...

    Hello Danae,
    Imagine a sweeping movement in which the travel of the sword is on a single plane. The arc is the distance of travel.
    Consider, for example, that the arc is always exactly parallel to the ground on which the swordsman stands.
