Mental Training for Fencing (all disciplines, Foil, Epee & Saber)
The Mental Game of Fencing devoted to helping fencers reach their potential. It will also teach them to enjoy practice and the events they compete in more. I want to help them use their passion to bring out the best in their efforts to succeed and enjoy their sport.
I first taught fencing in college in 1977. I was the Coaching Director at the Washington Fencing Academy. I currently have a young fencer who won both Cadet and Juniors at the recent Junior Olympics.
My approach as always is on both the cognitive and unconscious level, it revolves around what you say to yourself while competing. It’s a solid approach. I augment cognitive behavioral therapy (education) with imagery and other protocols. My focus is often on increasing self awareness through emotional intelligence and helping fencers understand their unconscious mind and the role it plays in success or failure during their event. Add metal toughness as your strongest competitive weapon today.
This is an intense program with focus on emotional intelligence. Often the spotlight is on stress management and/ or confidence building. At The Mental Game we will cover all aspects of sport psychology for fencing performance, so the individual learns to control mind and body. The Mental Game has a program for all levels of competitive fencing.
I have a wide range of individual and group programs and clinics. We can work at my office, at training facilities and even at competitions. I have worked with athletes via SKYPE all over the world.
I work with the fencer and their coach. I have always encouraged a team approach. I can help you compete better. Here is what we call the value proposition in sports. Look at how much time you spend on private training, fitness and practice. I can help you with your performance Now. Please look at what it means to you to accelerate your learning curve and start competing better today. Contact me today at (425) 241-6539 or by email: Margolies@TheMental-Game.com
