Aron Szilagyi Szilagyi Wins Fencing Sabre Gold - London 2012 Olympics

Full highlights of Hungary's Aron Szilagyi's Gold medal win against Italy's Diego Occhiuzzi in the Men's Fencing Sabre at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Fencing was included for the first time at the 1896 Games in Athens, and has remained on the Olympic programme since then. The women's fencing competition entered the Games in 1924 in Paris. Today, men and women compete in individual and team events, in which three types of weapon are used: foil, epee and sabre. The foil was, at first, the only weapon used by women, until the 1996 Games in Atlanta, when women's epee was introduced. Women's sabre appeared for the first time on the Olympic programme in Athens in 2004.

The Physics and Speed of Fencing

► CLICK for more fencing stories on redbull.com:
How much do you know about fencing? For most people, it's not much – a few seconds of quick moves, and a winner declared on the scoreboard. The speed of attacks and hits is so fast – it's quite hard to follow with an untutored eye.

Ukrainian fencer Olga Kharlan not only understands what's happening in those seconds, but also excels at scoring winning hits. Fencing isn't about force. Rather, the ability to choose the right position and distance is the key. The faster fencer will 'step-lunge', which offers more chances to land a hit first. The speed of this move made by professional athletes can be compared to the acceleration of a race car.

What if we put Kharlan next to Alexander Grinchuk’s 600hp #RedBull350z, which accelerates up to 100km in four seconds, on the starting line? You'd be surprised to see who's faster.

Intro to modern sabre fencing

A brief and hopefully lively guide to the fastest combat sport on earth. We've broken this into sections to explain the basic rules and dynamics of the game.

Presenting modern sabre fencing:
1. The basic aim is simple: Hit your opponent anywhere above the waist with your sword. When you hit, your light goes on, and you get a point
2. Once the ref says go, each fight lasts until someone scores. An entire match is usually first to 15 points (individual) or a relay to 45 points (team).
3.If only one person hits, that person scores. No questions asked.
4. If you chase your opponent off the end of strip, you win the point.
5. If both people hit, the referee decides who scores. They're looking for who controls the initiative.
The first way to win the initiative is to attack faster than your opponent.
6. If your opponent has launched an attack, you can win back control by making them miss. This is called a fall-short.
Then you can hit them with an attack of your own.
7. If you can't make your opponent fall short, you can block their
attack. This is called a parry.
Then you can hit back. This is called a riposte.
8. You can also win or maintain control by knocking your
opponent's blade out of the way.
This is called a beat. It's like a parry, but you don't have to wait for them to attack first.

It's freaking fast and there's a lot of tactics going on, but that right there is the core of it. Hopefully this makes it easier for people to enjoy!

Expert saber sparring: Lee Smith vs Richard Marsden

Impressive fighting skills at work. There is a reason why these guys teach swordsmanship, they are amazing.

This match took place at the Blood & Iron historical martial arts school in New Westminster, BC, Canada. Richard Marsden, co-founder and principal instructor of the Phoenix Society of Historical Swordsmanship, came for a visit to give two seminars, one on Fiore's longsword and another on Polish saber fencing. After the instruction he sparred with Lee Smith, co-founder and principal instructor of Blood & Iron.
