I’m Sharol Pestotnik with Colorado Fencing
Academy. On behalf of Expert Village, I’m here to discuss Sabre Fencing attacks. We’ve
learned the Beat Touch. Now we will learn the development of the Beat Touch. Fencing
is often called “physical chess”. It is the battle for initiative. When we go in to attack,
our opponent is also going to be in attack. They may be coming out with their point, so
our Beat Touch will take away their initiative by coming forward: beat, touch.
