Advanced Sabre Coaches Course

Summary

Beats on the blade are performed using the upper edge of the foible and in this less we will we various exercises which will help our students to develop a better tactile sense of the beat. The fencer-student in these video tutorials has a good technical level and does not require much correction. If your student is an intermediate-beginner don’t expect to begin working with beats and footwork very soon. Within less than 5 minutes of the lesson Maestro Peinador is working all lines with footwork.  

As in previous lessons the beat with advance or retreat is executed DURING the movement – NOT before or after. The explanation can be  seen at 12:00 minutes of the video.

Vocabulary:

dedos – fingers

tercio debil – foible

filo – blade edge
