Advanced Sabre Fencing : Changing Distance in Advanced Sabre Fencing


JASON SHERIDAN: On behalf of Expert Village,
this is Jason Sheridan of Sheridan Fencing Academy here in New York City. Today, we’re
going to talk about advanced sabre fencing. One other thing you can use the slide for
is to be able to change the distance of your attack, the distance that you will need to
go reach your opponent without giving away any of the attack, without changing anything
in your preparation to give your opponent an edge. Watch very carefully. Come both closer.
In this instance, Emma begins her attack with slide, Rachel tries to escape with a double
retreat we talked about earlier, but because she’s making the slide, she has the time to
bring her back foot even closer to her front foot and make a much longer attack. Watch
carefully. You see here, we’ll do it one more time. Emma’s back foot came all the way in.
Come back en garde. We’ll do it again. All the way in during her slide right up to her
back foot allowing her a lot of distance on her attack. And the double retreat was not
enough.
