Sabre Fencing Parry & Defense : Fencing Defense Using Parry 3 & Repost with Development


I’m Sharol Pestotnik with Colorado Fencing
Academy. On behalf of Expert Village, we’re going to be discussing Sabre Fencing defense.
The next defensive move in Sabre will be the development of our parry, or block. Sabre’s
very dynamic, very fast-moving. We use the whole length of the strip, which is forty-five
feet. If your opponent establishes an attack, you want to try to weaken their attack by
using your space, by moving within that space to try to dilute their attack, and to be able
to take a parry. So, for the development of our Parry Three, we’re going to be moving
on the strip. As they come forward into an attack, we’re going to come back. We’re going
to take a small step back, with a movement of our right arm This is Parry Three, it protects
the attack on your right side and your arm.

  1. These videos are going to mess up beginning US fencers! A parry 3 cannot involve pulling back the tip of your blade. Even in under 14 woman's sabre all of these ripostes would be one light remises against the defender. If you want to see a correct parry 3 riposte contact one of the national coaches. Ed Korfanty would be your best bet.
