The Fencing Lesson – Cues
Teaching fencers to fence has as its basic purpose the preparation of an athlete for competition. To achieve that purpose the fencing lesson should use triggers for action that resemble those that the fencer will encounter as opponents’ actions on the strip. These triggers are known as cues.
Signals can be conveyed with various diverse boosts:
(1) Blade – the exemplary signal is a sharp edge prompt. Opening the line to trigger a straight push, squeezing the cutting edge to trigger a separate, roundabout endeavors to take the sharp edge to trigger a counterdisengage, a particular repel against a basic activity to trigger the compound assault, and so forth. Sharp edge signals must be displayed reasonably in speed, scope of movement, and cutting edge position so that the understudy has a right photo of the conditions that make his activity conceivable in rivalry.
Two variables must be considered in cutting edge prompting. The first is a practical tallness for the cutting edge. Unpracticed mentors tend to stick the arm straight out from the shoulder in the more casual training position. This outcomes in a cutting edge too high to precisely reenact the stature of the sharp edge in many jumps, and makes a few activities, for instance an immediate riposte, practically inconceivable. The edge ought to be displayed at the real stature that the understudy will involvement in the rushes of regular contenders.
Second, the educator does not have to lurch. Throughout an entire day of educating the teacher may need to recreate a huge number of lurches. A basic stride forward with the sharp edge at the right stature does the occupation.
(2) Movement – footwork is the most reasonable sign to trigger suitable footwork with respect to the understudy. For instance, if the expectation is to signal a propel thrust, the teacher ought to start a stage back on the begin of the understudy’s augmentation. Since footwork is one of the initial segments of the lesson that can be discharged to the understudy, the educator must have the capacity to sign proper understudy activities by having the capacity to perceive footwork traps and benevolently fall into them.
(3) Rhythm – hanging cadence and speed of bladework or footwork may signal the understudy to quicken or decelerate activities. Quickening activities with respect to the teacher signal the understudy to build her speed. An anticipated speed signs the understudy to either be speedier or slower in conveying activities. Also, if the understudy is in control of footwork and timing in the lesson, the educator’s coordinating velocity with preliminary activity, signals the understudy to quicken on the assault.
(4) Tactics – strategic changes are one of the best signs an educator needs to instruct strategic basic leadership and eyes open fencing. Changing a repel, changing the assault, executing stop hits, all joined with changes in development designs, all compel understudies to choose another system and another footwork blend. For instance, the exemplary sign set to trigger a change from basic assaults to compound assaults is to repel the straightforward assault with a stage back. Presently the understudy must utilize a progress with the bluff to both draw the repel and control the separation for the last rush with the genuine assaulting development. In the meantime the signal has given the understudy adequate space and beat to make the activity work.
