FEINT ATTACK [2 records]

Record 1 2015-06-15

English

Subject field(s)
  • Fencing
DEF

A continuous offensive movement made to resemble an attack in order to draw a reaction from the opponent.

CONT

The student must be taught to parry attacks, not feints. In order to achieve this, the student must react to the arm extension only if it is executed together with movement of the front foot (if the attack is executed in the normal way) and must disregard an extension without foot movement, which should be read as only a feint of attack.
