Do flatworms move?

Movement of the flatworm is by means of two layers of muscles in its body wall and by thousands of cilia, which cover its lower surface. The animal's movement is controlled by this simple nervous system. The flatworm will move away from bright light. It has eyespots that allow the animal to tell light from dark and the direction the light is coming from.

What is the name of the foil fencing move where the fencer does a jump in place before executing a lunge?

Balestra. It is not really a jump in place, for the body should cover some forward distance, even more than the lunge that follows. When the balestra is executed correctly, the body does not hop up in the air(wasted movement) but springs forward in a way that looks like a regular lunge to the opponent. But instead of the trailing leg staying back, it is immediately brought up together with the lead foot. If the opponent has evaded this first attack, he might not be ready for the lunge that immediately follows.
