Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to cinematically analyze fencing lunge in two groups of elite and novice athletes. Eight right-handed fencers (foil-male) were selected from Sharif University’s fencing team (novice group, mean 21.5±1.3 years) and Iranian national fencing team (Elite group, mean 24±2.5 years) and were tested in two different days following installing of markers over subjects’ joints. They performed fencing lunge, facing three high speed Kinemetrix cameras. The results showed that the elite group had a higher mean lunge length than the novice group (1.17±0.17m vs. with 1.02±0.1 m). Studying the affecting factors, it was noticed that the elite group inclined their bodies (0.117±0.04 m) more towards their front legs than novice group (0.051±0.30) in on-guard position…
