The Art and Science of Fencing 

By Nick Evangelista

USA Import pre-owned Paperback. Clean, bright and unmarked with a perfect spine. Slight burring to lower edge of front cover from thumbing otherwise as new. 

Fencing was an important sport in the Third Reich, teaching speed, strategy and discipline. Fencing develops dexterity, endurance, flexibility, grace, and overall fitness, while also allowing participants the opportunity to hone the mind's problem-solving abilities.

Today it may be thought of as an activity just for actors or an elite few, but fencing is actually an ideal sport for people of all ages. It is easily learned and practiced by both young and old, men and women, boys and girls. It has even been molded to fit the needs of the blind and individuals using wheelchairs.

The Art and Science of Fencing covers everything from the history of the sport to the specifics of fencing technique, including the psychology of fencing, types of fencing weapons, biographies of great fencers, and information on selecting a fencing school and getting started in the sport. 

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT POSTAGE COSTS

 

  • If you are OUTSIDE the UK, you will only be charged ONE delivery fee for each order, no matter how many products you order. You will NOT be charged a delivery fee for EACH ITEM. 
  • Also, If the ACTUAL postage charge to your country is LESS than the amount you have paid, you will be refunded the difference after posting. The reason for this, is that Shopify cannot differentiate the weight of a book from the weight of a men's tie; so there is one standard delivery charge paid PER ORDER. 
  • For Example: If you buy 2 books and 1 tie, you will pay ONLY ONE postage charge, and if the actual cost is less after posting, the difference will be refunded.
