To review the drill that we used in practice today, I’ve included a link to the tutorial video below. Though the drill is used in the video for football players, the skills that it is intended to develop (reaction time and quickness) are applicable to fencers as well. If you have some time and have a training partner, continue work on this drill to improve your reaction time.
We will continue to use this drill from time to time. To make things more interesting, I will occasionally bring different types of balls to liven things up.
