    I've been googling for a decent collection of top epee hits for a presentation I'm working on. I'm trying to avoid fencer specific collections.

    Does anyone know of a good video, no more than a couple of minutes, of extremely high quality epee hits?

    Sorry folks definitely no foil or sabre required.

    If you want "great" as in technically executed or "great" as in historical or competitively significant they would be different. For example Brittany Heidemann vs Shin Lam and the clock controversy at the London Olympics.
    Or do you want to define it by the hit and then find an example on you tube: flick, broken time, fleche to advanced target, stop hit with angulation etc? Somewhere in the recent Doha feed there was a Romanian epeeist that did a vertical jump with counter attack to the arm.

    I put together a highlight reel from Rio a while back. Feel free to trim it to suit.

    Cheers. Sdubinsky's is probably what I need. I'll show a couple of minutes of that.

    This is my favorite comeback bout, Jeannet VS Tagliariol 09 Worlds. Many great touches from Matteo.

    No worries. I'm doing a small talk about epee for a pentathlon group I'll be running. I need a collection so they'll be redirected to you in canse they want to watch the video.
