Sabre Fencing: A Practical Guide for Training Young Athletes


"Important" and "Comprehensive" are two of the adjectives that came to mind when I read this book. It is a long-overdue comprehensive text for training young fencers. It is written with a sabre emphasis, but only about 30% is weapon-specific. The vast amount of information on the mental, physical, technical, and tactical training of young fencers is just amazing. If you are a coach of any weapon, a fencer who wants a deeper understanding of your sport, or a parent who wants to really know what should be going on in your child's fencing program, get this book. This book is also recommended for anyone contemplating coaching training through the USFCA.
