Basic Rules of Sabre Fencing : Sabre Fencing Defensive Moves


I’m Sharol Pestotnik with Colorado Fencing
Academy. I’m Nickolay Logatchov, coach of Colorado Fencing Academy. On behalf of Expert
Village we’re here to discuss the rules of Sabre Fencing. To gain initiative in the defensive
mode, you need to either parry, or let your opponent miss their attack. So as the opponent
comes forward, in the aggressive mode, you parry. You now have gained the initiative.
Once you gain the initiative, it is very important that you become the aggressor, and finish
your attack, gaining the point.

  1. They're only fencing slow because she's narrating slow. But that is the worst saber fencer I have ever seen.

  2. They're following the format that the folks at expert village told them to. The two guys at the beginning are an A 2010 and an A 2011. Thats not how they actually fence. The two ladies fencing at the end are veterans fencers. Of course they're gonna be slow.
