Fencing - get to know it,
This review is from: Fencing (Know the Sport) (Paperback)
48 pages, 80 full colour photographs, and half a dozen line drawings! How to dress, step, lunge, fleche, balestra, attack, guard and parry with any of the three Olympic fencing weapons. Anyone who'd like to see lots of pictures of modern fencing, along with a comprehensive list of how to, and a thorough glossary of terms... this is the book for you. It's produced in collaboration with the British Amateur Fencing Association and it covers the lot. Other books will cover it in more depth, but as a colourful introduction to the sport,I doubt you'll get better. Even if you spend a lot more.
