The contents correspond to the most basic level of fencing training. It is intended as a teaching tool for fencing instructors and trainers, to help promote understanding of the sport of fencing with the fencing students, and to improve independence in training. For the parents of fencing children it is an important motivational companion to fencing instruction.
