Fencer's postural control as key component of sport technique for success of combat actions

The study analyzes the effects of asymmetrical loads in the fencer’s prime posture versus footwork including shin muscles performance in attacks, defenses and maneuvering aspects. Based on the study data, we designed and tested a set of corrective exercises with the real-time biological feedback system to analyze the asymmetrical loads in fencing bouts. We found that the real-time biological feedback system applied in the 13-14 year-old fencers’ physical training process facilitates the postural control skills building process, forms the right prime posture and improves the static/dynamic body balancing skills in the training and competitive process. Special physical training practices for the 13-14 year-old fencers with application of the real-time biological feedback system were found beneficial as verified by the improved training and competitive performance rates and notable progress in the versatility and success rates of the technical and tactical actions.
