Learning Fencing by Berndt Barth, Katrin Barth


Learning Fencing by Berndt Barth, Katrin Barth

This work, with its child appropriate uncomplicated text and motivating illustrations, was written for a child's hand. By inviting the child to complete individual tasks, to solve puzzles, to answer questions and to complete drawings, the book achieves the feel of a workbook. The little cartoon character Foily accompanies the reader throughout the book, as he offers tips and invites the child to practice independently. The contents correspond to the most basic level of fencing training. It is intended as a teaching tool for fencing instructors and trainers, to help promote understanding of the sport of fencing with the fencing students, and to improve independence in training. For the parents of fencing children it is an important motivational companion to fencing instruction.
