Abstract - The influence of chosen factors on athletes’ competition results in different stages of training – exemplified by fencing

The author discusses the influence of all-round, semi-specific and specific fitness, elementary technique and psy­cho-motor abilities (psychological processes connected with motor performance) on fencers’ competition results in various stages of training. Then he describes fencers’ learning, perfecting and applying technical and tactical skills in three phases. His conclusions are based on a set of specially chosen tests, observations and analysis of competitions.
