Winning at Épée: Techniques for the Shorter Fencer

Winning at Epee coverWinning at Epee: Techniques for the shorter fencer

Robin Catling

In the sport of Modern Olympic Fencing, where the taller fencer notionally has the advantage of reach, the shorter fencer needs every tactical help they can get – especially fencing épée where there is no right-of-way rule.

Winning at Épée takes the shorter fencer through the plays that can shorten the odds; from mobility, timing, tactics and psychology, to recognising and dealing with the danger zone created by that difference in reach.

Practical analysis and advice from experienced fencing coach Robin Catling proves that any fencer of any stature can win at épée.
