World and Olympic Champion Johan Harmenberg shows why classical fencing can only take you so far. Johan is the 1977 World Champion and 1980 Olympic Champion in individual epee. He's a world-renowned research scientist but still finds time to train the Swedish team.
This book is an interesting look at the evolution of epee from the 1950s to the tactics of today.
Johan Harmenberg had no great technical ability, but used extensive analysis to create a new approach to training to beat the best classical epeeists of the late 1970s, becoming both world and Olympic champion. It is the first book to describe in detail just how a top competitive fencer thinks when on the piste against equally determined opponents.
