LED Sabre – Rules and Principles of a new combat sport

The second episode about our LED sabre series with Faisal Mian, instructor at London's Silver Sabre Academy, where you can learn all about the recently born art of fighting with a light sword, is here! Did you know that the discipline of LED sword-fighting as a true discipline of combat sports is already as advanced as to have its own set of rules for tournaments? If not, we recommend you read on!

Experiencing Wireless fencing

Experiencing Wireless fencing

You may have heard of our revolutionary wireless fencing system (and enjoyed our video), but have you ever tried it? Luckily, there's the fencing community if you haven't. Our collegues from Leon Paul France tracked down a coach who, after more than two years of use, is able to provide a long-term insight into the practical benefits of our wireless system, so we've decided to share the interview they did with French coach Thierry Tomine with you.   Continue reading →

New year resolutions: the battle is on. Thoughts of a fencer

New year resolutions: the battle is on. Thoughts of a fencer

It’s that time of year again. January. The moment to set out goals for the 365 days ahead… and as every year, fail miserably? For our start into 2019 we’ve decided to look at the popular sport of making new year resolutions (and almost immediately breaking them) from a fencer’s point of view. We won’t convert this into a self-help blog (promise!), but here are some thoughts about good intentions (and how they may or may not pave the way to hell).   Continue reading →

Fencers and Coffee - a (semi-serious) study about a special bond

Fencers and Coffee - a (semi-serious) study about a special bond

"Oh sweet coffee, I adore thee". At one point or another (Monday mornings, we're looking at you!) in our lives we've probably all been there and thought that thought. But, on a scale from zero to caffeine-junkie, how deep is the love between fencers and coffee? And even more interesting: is there a correlation between your intake of the magical black brew and the weapon you fence? We've called in an expert in the matter, our very own Jon Willis, to share the results of many years of (semi)-serious study with you. Are you ready for the results ;)? Then read on!   Continue reading →

The travelling fencer problems.  10 Do’s and Dont's when you’re on the road as a fencer

The travelling fencer problems. 10 Do’s and Dont's when you’re on the road as a fencer

You might have heard about the so-called travelling salesman problem, which is one of the most studied conundrums amongst computer scientists, but here at Leon Paul we believe there is another problem out there that merits at least the same level attention, and that’s the problems you face when you’re on the go with your fencing kit. (If you've ever gotten into a fight before your actual fencing class with an opponent named “revolving doors”, you know what we’re talking about). So, based on the experience of our Instagram girl Johanna, we’ve collected 10 Do’s and Dont's for the travelling fencer. Warning – they might need to be taken with a pinch of salt ;)     Continue reading →

New FIE rules and the sponsorship game

New FIE rules and the sponsorship game

At their annual congress held in Paris in December 2018 (right before the gala hosted to celebrate their 105th birthday, which we've blogged about extensively), updated their sponsorship rules, allowing for more advertising. These new rules are a fantastic opportunity for fencers to help finance their athletic dreams. You have 10 spaces for representing brands and if you are a top fencer or even an aspiring young fencer, new funding possibilities might now open up for you. Our director Ben Paul gives you an overview over the new rules and shares his tips for athletes. Continue reading →

Walking the fashion show at the FIE anniversary gala (and the idea behind it)

Working at Leon Paul definitely comes with unexpected tasks and experiences. If you don’t believe us, just ask our Instagram girl Johanna, whom we sent to Paris this past weekend on a quite extraordinary mission: at the gala held at the Grand Palais in Paris to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the International Fencing Federation, along with World cup fencer (and accidentally also her colleague) James Honeybone; she walked down the runway in what we think is a fencing uniform that could ensure the future of our sport by making it attractive for new audiences. Read all about that unique experience after the jump. Continue reading →

Golden start to Tokyo2020 Qualifiers

The 2018 season for me seems to have flown by and just when I felt I was getting back into my flow again, following my World cup Epee Gold in Pisa back in March, I then had a long break through to the next competition in July, the Warsaw World cup, where I took Epee Gold, Sabre Bronze & Team Foil Silver!
