VMP – 6 Around- The-World of Quarantine Fencing Drills
The fencing community is an interesting one. When we are not busy trying to slash and/or skewer one another we are, quite often, do all we can to help one another with extraordinary generosity.
We can see this manifested in the awesome train-at-home videos being posted by outstanding fencing clubs and individuals around the globe and we take great pride in our contributions to this noble cause.
So take comfort in knowing that you are not alone at this challenging time but rather part of an extraordinary world-wide community of fencers ready to offer a helping hand … and looking forward to getting back on the piste where we can all get back to mercilessly drilling each other full of holes!
Here are some train-at-home clips from the United Kingdom, Canada, France and Chicago USA (including drills presented by Coach Habala a five time national champion of Team Romania).
In following these videos remember to warm-up before attempting any physically demanding activities, cool-down after, stay hydrated, always follow safety practices, focus on your form and do not increase your speed until you can execute the moves properly at a slow or moderate pace.
Finally, please let us know which videos you find most helpful, fun, engaging…
