The fencing assault is a fight between two competitors, in which they alternate the offensive with the defensive attitude while attacking and retreating in the hope that one will strike the other with the tip of the blade, with impressive speed and precision. The fencer who is faster will have the advantage of scoring touch and has a better chance of winning the competition.


This study aims to verify whether training programs that use both non-specific and specific fencing exercises develop the speed of fencers at the level of the lower and upper limbs.


The study subjects were divided into two homogeneous groups. The experimental group consisted of 10 athletes (5 boys and 5 girls), and the control group also included 10 athletes (5 boys and 5 girls). The experimental group followed a training program, including one set of exercises to develop limb speed, the set of exercises being different every month, with a total duration of the intervention of 3 months; the control group followed traditional training, without emphasizing the development of the limb speed.


After three months of training, we could notice a significant difference between the two groups in terms of defining the speed of the athletes’ lower and upper limbs.


Considering the results obtained from the tests, we can state that the innovative and different training methods significantly developed the speed of the fencers in the experimental group.
