|Class, please come to order!
First, we will talk about the proper equipment! We will at all times wear a chest protector, an armpit sleeve, a jacket, an arm gaurd glove, and a face mask!
Attack: A basic fencing technique, also called a thrust, consisting of extending the sword arm to declare an attack and attempt to land a touch upon the opponent's valid area.
Feint: An attack with the purpose of provoking a reaction from the opposing fencer.
Lunge: A thrust while extending the front leg by using a slight kicking motion and propelling the body forward with the back leg.
Parry: Basic defence technique, hitting your opponenet's foil while it is preparing or executing an attack to deflect the blade away from your valid area and to give yourself the right of way.
These are some of the techniques you will use during this class.
Also, fencing involves bladed weapons. They are the foil, the sabre, and the `Epe`e.
We will be using the foil exclusively for the fist five weeks! You will practice stance, lunges, attacks, retreats, thrust, parries, etc.
You will at all times make sure your foil has the button which will prevent (Cori and Boo Boo!) serious injury!
First, the stance!
Spot demonstrates the proper stance. Left foot back a bit Cori! Good! Now step forward towards your opponent, defenders, step back, this is known as a retreat! It is just as important as the attack!
Everybirdy, together, forward, retreat, forward, retreat! Good, Now we will go on with the proper salute, and attack!
Instructor Spot demonstrates. The class follows suit!
Good, again! Again, again! Good! Now pair off and try the attack retreat sequence over and over!
Boo Boo, posture is very important! Stand straight!
