Description

Fencing – parry like it’s 1763. The year refers to the time when modern sports fencing was born.

Here is a bit of history (thanks to Wikipedia).

Fencing has been around for a while and was practiced as a combat skill.

The shift towards fencing as a sport rather than as military training happened from the mid-18th century and was led by Domenico Angelo, who established a fencing academy, Angelo’s School of Arms, in Carlisle House, Soho, London in 1763.

His school was run by three generations of his family and dominated the art of European fencing for almost a century.

He established the essential rules of posture and footwork that still govern modern sports fencing, although his attacking and parrying methods were still much different from current practice. Although he intended to prepare his students for real combat, he was the first fencing master yet to emphasize the health and sporting benefits of fencing more than its use as a killing art, particularly in his influential book L’École des armes (The School of Fencing), published in 1763.

According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, “Angelo was the first to emphasize fencing as a means of developing health, poise, and grace. As a result of his insight and influence, fencing changed from an art of war to a sport.”
