    (Foil) The most important thing on attack is to...

    (Foil) For you, what is the most important (one) thing to do to make a successful attack? (Of course, there are many important things to do, but what is the most important.)

    Attack in time, and in distance with ROW and hit on target without your opponent taking ROW from you

    The most important thing is to score the touch. And there are many important factors, but you can't rank one more important than the other.
    Timing, Distance, Tempo, Set up, Accuracy, Speed...
    Work on what you need to work on.

    I think each and every fencer has his/her own thing that they need to really think about to make a successful atack. It also depends on who you're fencing. One thing that I know that I really need to concentrate on is pacience. I need to wait to atack untill the distence/timing/ect. is right.
    When love bites, be sure to bite back.
    Rule #1 She who hesitates has lost.
    Rule #2 Don't trick yourself into thinking you suck.
    Rule #3 Remember, bad footwork makes coach cry.

    Thank you for the first decent answer. Now go turn your spell checker on.

    I already told you there's no one thing that's the most important. Fencing is about improving your whole game. What you need to work on is what's the most important.

    Yeah... I know, I've always had trouble with spelling. It's just not my strong point. I'm not entierly sure how to turn on the spellchecker. I can do it in word, but my internet doesn't have one. *turns red, feeling stupid*

    Rule #1 She who hesitates has lost.

    I didn't ask to make everything "golden". There are no issues with the question. It is very simple. I am asking you to prioritize.

    No, you said patience (or some spelling of it) which is one thing.

    Your question was more on the line of, "If you have to go without one of your important organs, which one would it be?" And without any of those important organs, I wouldn't be alive anyway -- so how can I choose?

    I concur.
    This question...
    IS FLAWED......
    A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the word you first thought of.
