Fencing has its own specialized language and it is helpful to develop a grasp of some of the more frequently terms to strengthen your understanding of the tactics and techniques that make up fencing.
In this lesson we will be discussing Renewals and specifically the Redoublement.
Renewal is an offensive action made immediately after a previous offensive action has failed due to a miss or parry.
There are three types of renewals: Remise, Reprise and Redoublement.
An offensive action made immediately after a previous offensive action has missed or been parried. There are three types of renewal: the #Remise (direct), the #Redoublement (indirect or compound) and the #Reprise (made after returning to the en garde position).
In this lesson Coach Simon demonstrates how to make renewals more effective and the over-arching issue of ensuring your fencing moves make sense given the situation you are facing on the piste.
