A Basic Fencing Companion

ByPaul SiseCamilla Sise

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“A wonderful resource for blossoming fencers and aspiring coaches,” says no less than Vinnie Bradford, Olympian, National Champion in two weapons, and member of the USA Fencing Hall of Fame. Every beginning fencer should lay hands on this book! (And lots of coaches!) Author Paul Sise not only introduces you to fencing foil, saber, and epee, he shows you how it’s done, with copious photo illustrations and sometimes humorous sketches. It covers the basic techniques and progresses the novice fencer from raw beginner to eager competitor. Sise goes into depth, explaining the psychological and tactical differences and similarities between the weapons, and clarifies the often-confusing language of fencing. Finally, Paul enriches the book by offering illustrative stories from his own experience as a coach and fencer. This is an updated reprint of A Basic Fencing Companion which was originally published by SKA Swordplay Press.
