All sports facilities are currently closed, and we don’t know how long it will last. Here are some training ideas to keep you in fencing shape while at home.
We are sharing these on our Facebook page, and will add links here as we go.
How are we all going with our enforced rest break?
As promised, we’re going to share some stuff with you to help keep you in shape at home.
Today we’ll kick off with some Fencers Edge videos.
First, physical conditioning with some balance work!
As some of you know, when you ask the coach what you can practice at home the first thing she says is “Footwork!”
Coach has also been known to say that there is no point practicing your footwork badly.
So, before we start footworking, here is a quick review of common mistakes and how to correct them. You will probably find a lot of this very familiar as well!
Last one for today, this one courtesy of Gryphon Fencing Club.
Think of this as a “my first fencing footwork drill”.
More physical conditioning with Fencer’s Edge. Today it’s squats and push-ups!
Thursday would normally be epee at Olinda. Here is something fun for the epeeists.
