Transcript of This Video
Hi my name is Brad Bogus. Now I'm going to guide you through the 5 main target areas in fencing, there are more than 5 but of the main ones and they're usually the ones that you can most comfortably make your attacks toward or defend. Most of the terminology involved in fencing is French so pardon me if I slaughter the pronunciation. You start with 5, 5 is the middle it's the center kind of in between one and 10. 5 is what you're guarding whenever you're on guard. So your foil is here and it keeps you centered on 5. Now depending on whether you're right handed or whether you're left handed, the side target areas are going to flip around, so if you're right handed like myself, the upper hand portion of your labaj is known as 4 or quatre. If you're left handed it would be over here, so this is 4, this is the one that you're going to guard most often as it is the most exposed out of all of the target areas. Directly on the opposite side you have six, or six. So you have 4 - 5 - and 6, those are your main upper target areas. You go to the bottom left hand portion, if you're right handed, it's known as 7 or sep tem and directly on the other side you have 8 or octave, switch around if you're left handed but I'm right handed so I'm showing you, you have 4 you have 5 you have 6, 7 and 8. it's important to know these because there's a lot of officiating involved in fencing and once they can call where your attack was actually made and they can say you attacked on 6, they're going to know more or less that they are actually right because they are able to see the point and officiate perfectly.
