"In fencing, weight and strength mean nothing. Physical inferiorities disappear...the fencer need only to know when, how and where he must thrust his blade. Almost all of his/her ability therefore depends upon the sudden release, from total relaxation, of highly concentrated nervous energy. He/she develops it constantly. In the advanced fencer, it becomes all powerful and practically inexhaustible." -from Nadi On Fencing

"Light fencing consists of a mask, a weapon, and a protective vest. The basic form of the mask is a sheet of Makrolon glass. The vest is made out of a sturdy 3-D material with a sensitive outer layer made of photonic fabric. In a passive state the edge of the target area is lit up in red or green. If the fencer touches this area then the exact touch point in the vest lights up and the touch is also signaled acoustically."
A MUST see if you love fencing! Great Video in Russian, with the word "technology" throughout. If you don't speak Russian hard to understand commentary but the fencing footage is worth the watch alone!
On "Sports Technologies", dedicated to fencing relating the fallout from the history of July 18, 1982 tragic event in Rome at the World Championships in fencing when During a duel with a German Matthews Berra broken blade Splinters and pierces the mask of an opponent, Ukrainian Vladimir Smirnov.
This creates a wound in his head and after 48 hours the athlete dies.
Tragedy puts fencing as a sport under threat. The position of the Olympic Committee strict: if the quality stays the same equipment, fencing has no place in the Olympics.

She already has the title of the first woman to win the Cadet, Junior and Senior Fencing Nationals all in one year. “She never gives up, no matter the score,” says coach Peter Drevenka. “She’s diligent and respectful, and she’s coachable because she knows how to listen.”
Tim Moorehouse, American Fencer thinks " It is time to bring back this cartoon. Touche Turtle also has an amazing sidekick...a dog named Dum Dum. GO TOUCHE TURTLE! This episode below is great. Touche doesn't like pesky little bugs..."
