  1. Where are the other 6 pages? No 163 terms here!

  2. Thanks for the information. I always find interesting things for my classes here. You’ve really put a lot of work into the site. Good work!

    Thank you! In Spanish I’m doing a skit on a sport I do and since I only do fencing it’s hard to find the terms. Thanks again!

  4. Writing about fencing for my Spanish class and could not get some of the words to translate. This list was much appreciated.

    I am reading the novel ‘ The Fencing Master’s by Arturo Perez- Reverted. Can you please help me understand some of the movements in the story. I fenced in college many years ago and an familiar with parry, riposte, point of line, etc. I do not understand the numeral value to the moves.
    To parry in quarte
    Riposte in seconde
    Froissment in reverse
    Do you know what froissment and flanconnade are?
    Thank you
