  • Description

    No title.

    A group of school boys (between 13-16 years old I would say) practice their fencing strokes in the open air. Parents and other boys watch while they go through their paces. They move in unison as they practice various steps and thrusts. Intertitle reads: "Fence and keep fit" is a good saying here, for almost every muscle is brought into play in this double-handed sport." C/U of a youngish boy practising. Another boy (possibly younger - about 10?) practices his thrust and parry technique.

    A fencing master and a pupil have a duel. None of those fencing wear masks. We then see slow motion footage of two adults fencing. Paper records state that this is a school in France.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 497.
