Intermediate Sabre Fencing : Practicing Direction in Intermediate Sabre Fencing


JASON SHERIDAN: On behalf of Expert Village,
my name is Jason Sheridan from the Sheridan Fencing Academy here in New York City, and
today, we’re going to demonstrate some intermediate sabre fencing. Once we have these basics of
forward and backward, we need to be able to combine this movement to be able to move effectively
and efficaciously against an opponent. What this means is moving with change of rhythm
so that we are not predictable about how we’re going to move or when we’re going to move
or even where we’re going to move next. The girls here will practice moving forward and
backward. They will be changing the rhythm. Go ahead, girls. What this means is, they’re
changing the size and the speed of their steps. They are changing the direction and they are
being surprising in how they do that. Notice, for example, as they’re moving also that they
are staying very smooth and very relaxed. They’re not being clunky. They’re not being
jerky. They’re changing surprisingly. They’re being unpredictable but they’re being relaxed.
They’re being smooth. As they move, they can also move their hands to different position,
changing their blade position, which we’ll go over shortly.
