Beginning Epee Fencing : Epee Fencing: Opposition Repost


In this clip we’re going to start looking
at opposition repost. Now, I was being hit in the arm when I would attack him, so that’s
a good opportunity for me to grab his blade and then hit him while he can’t get off the
blade, and that’s called opposition repost. When I grab the blade, it is a perry, or a
block, and then I attack and in opposition he can’t get off the blade, and I hit him,
and only one light goes on hopefully. Now, we’ll demonstrate. Let’s say I attack him like this. He comes
out to hit me with a stab thrust. I grab his blade. Notice? He can’t hit me, and I go all
the way and he hit… Oh! He did get off and hit me at the same time. So that can happen
if he’s smart. I go like this. Oh, no! Now he’s getting away from it. Now he’s doing
more technique than he’s supposed to know, but most people are like that. Okay, so he
comes over to hit me here. Ooo! Oh! Together. Again. Comes to hit me here. Ah! Okay. Comes
to hit me here. Like that, very good. Comes to hit me here. Oh, no! Don’t talk. Come to
hit me. See, like that. The idea is to grab the blade and hit the opponent.
