VMP -3 Footwork Foundation
Fencing footwork is super important and something you can practice at home without any special equipment. However, you must be sure that you are keeping good form and reinforcing proper technique.
So, be sure to review stance and footwork basics and maintain a focus on technique rather than speed or number of reps.
Below are two short clips reviewing the en garde stance and footwork basics.
Below is a video developed by Coach Nellya Secvostyanova of Manhattan Fencing. Nellya a past Olympiad and National Champion of Kazakhstan provides a nice set of footwork exercises you can do at home with just 2 meters of space. Just remember Nellya’s rule: If you mess up on an exercise it doesn’t count and you have to do it again!
