"A model of fencing instruction."—Time Magazine
"A detailed and well-illustrated exposition of the art."—The New York Times
Amateur champion and Olympic gold medalist, professional competitor and fencing master, duelist and teacher, Aldo Nadi ranks among the greatest fencers of all time. Born at the turn of the twentieth century into an Italian fencing family, Nadi grew up in a milieu that fostered a passion for fencing. In this outstanding guide, he offers an unsurpassed wealth of technical and tactical advice and evokes the sport's glamour, romance, and excitement.
Suitable for both beginners and advanced fencers, this comprehensive guide to foil technique progresses from fundamentals to sophisticated maneuvers. Nadi presents philosophical and practical evaluations of every facet of the game, from attack, defense, and deceit, to the impulse to win, the tournament temperament, and the ability to analyze opponents. Only a fencer of Nadi's caliber could write with such complete authority, sharing the secrets discovered with many years of experience.
Written in the 1940s, this book became the most-sought-after volume of its kind. Nadi's advice remains as valid today as it was decades ago, and his guide is essential reading for every serious fencer and aspiring champion.
