PointMaster Training System

A lot of factors go into successful fencing - solid technique, well-developed reactions, a fine sense of timing, dynamic footwork, and focused eye-hand coordination.

Some of your training requires a partner in the fencing salle but some you can and should accomplish on your own. Developing a keen sense of precision in your efforts to accurately hit a moving target can be done in your own time, in your own room if you wish, on the road - wherever you can hang the PointMaster 1.0!

Two free-swinging golf balls suspended by chain provide an always-changing moving target to challenge your tracking abilities and eye-hand timing. Your opponents will rarely provide you a stationary target - so why train that way? Work with a small, moving target and you will reap the benefits of hitting what you want, when you want in that next fencing bout.

Our PointMaster training tools are simply made and simple to set up. Just find a place where you can hook a small chain or s-hook.

You'll find regular, consistent practice daily will sharply improve your point-control AND increase your confidence to hit a small, moving target. Because no one's hand is smaller than a golf ball - if you can hit THAT, you can hit almost anything!

PointMaster uses RECYCLED golf balls so you can feel happy knowing you are using a somewhat ‘green’ training system!

How to Use the PointMaster? (Here is a suggested sequence that works well!)

1. Pick your weapon.

2. Extend-advance until you lightly touch the upper target with your tip.

3. Extend (no legs - arm only!) to hit. As the chain begins to swing, resist the temptation to manually slow it down. Strive to time your extension or cut to hit the moving target. Make 25 attempts to hit the target.

4. Take one retreat. Extend-lunge or cut to hit. Make 25 attempts to hit the target.

5. Take another retreat. Extend-advance-lunge or cut to hit. Make 25 attempts to hit the target.

6. Take a break! You probably missed way more often than you hit! But that’s normal. Give yourself patience and time and you WILL get better. And it will translate onto the fencing strip as you grow more and more confident!
