Hi, my name is Brad Bogus. Now I am going to guide you through some of the basic attacks in foil fencing. Remember with the attack you have your foil guarding 5 in the middle of your area. Before you make an attack you want to know which target area you are going to attack and pick it and commit. So whenever you make your attack you want to pick the line. The line is known as the target you are to affect. Okay. Now with foil fencing with most fencing you don't want to cut, slash, you're not trying to wax them with your sword. The intended purpose is to take the tip and put it into the opponent's body. So you pick your line, make your attack; you don't slash your attack. Okay. The basic lunge and remember to always keep your mask on when competing. With your basic lunge you are going to pick your line of attack, you're going to make your lunge which is a committed attack and you are going to point your foil straight towards the opponent's body in that affected target area. You pick the attack at 6, extend, and lunge that way the point is going into their body on 6, that's your line. You have your foil pointing towards where you expect and close your distance with your lunge and pull your body back up.
