What does a training look like?

The lesson

A regular training starts with a warming-up, usually followed bij a training exercise (on the tactics of fencing). After this there is usual free comptetition (you may chose your opponent), sometimes a poule unique (everybody fences against everybody). During the free competition the trainer will provide individual training sessions.
A competition training is more intense and focusses on athletic skills: speed, strength, endurance and flexability.
