The GB Style provides for a technical and tactical framework for coaches to support their athletes as they build their fencing specific skills and move through the pathway stages.
It sets out what a GBR fencer is expected to be able to do from a technical and tactical perspective.
It also creates a common reference point and terminology for coaches and athletes when they come together to train or compete.
The technical and tactical framework is built around the fundamental ‘3 P’s: Perceive, Predict and Provoke. These define a framework of space/distance and time:
Based on the 3 P’s each weapon has its own defined GB style. This is reviewed on a regular basis by the weapon coaches on the Athlete Development Programme.
