Covering foil, sabre and epee in turn, the exercises work from the basics of on guard and control of the weapon, through simple attacks, to parries, ripostes, counter-ripostes and compound attacks. The exercises can be used by two fencers of similar ability, or by coach and pupil, thereby offering a useful aid for students and coaches alike.
