Anyone who wishes to learn the sport of fencing will find the basic elements necessary to begin in Foil, Saber, and Épée Fencing. The already accomplished fencer will find the answers to methodology and strategies by which to overcome one's opponent in tournament play. The coach and teacher is herein presented with lesson plans by which to chart a student's progress. The administrator is advised of the safety factors and range of liability to consider while incorporating fencing into a sports program.

Three eminent coaches, each with a wide range of international experience, present their methods of teaching, which are compatible for the student choosing to learn the skills necessary in more than one weapon. Excellent photographs and diagrams illustrate the concepts, and an extensive annotated bibliography provides the reader with a wide selection of research materials. Late in the summer of 1993 new rule changes were adopted by the United States Fencing Association. These changes, which go into effect with the start of the 1993-94 fencing season, are included in this manual.

Foil, Saber, and Épée Fencing. also traces the transition of the art of duelling from the combat arena to the sports arena.
