MissLinda here's a link for you.
I suggest getting "Sergei Golubitsky Golden Bouts DVD 97, 98, 99 World Champs Reviews" -- he is the best in the world for foil fencing.

What qualities make a good fencer? There are many.
On the athletic side, speed and endurance must rank foremost. Other traits that can be exploited are strength (for explosive speed, not heavy handedness), precision, and flexibility. Quick reaction time=20 is extremely important.
On the intellectual side, a good mind for strategy and tactics is essential. The ability to quickly size up your opponent and adapt your style accordingly is essential.
Psychologically, a fencer must be able to maintain focus, concentration, and emotional level-headedness under intense conditions of combat. Stress management, visualization, and relaxation techniques are all helpful to putting in winning performances.
As far as body type goes, it is always possible to adapt your style to take advantage of your natural traits. Even so, height seems to be useful in epee, but not necessarily in sabre. Small or thin people are harder to hit in foil. A long reach helps in epee, and long legs are an asset in foil.
It should be noted that left handers usually enjoy a slight advantage, especially against inexperienced fencers. This may account for the fact that lefties make up 15% of novice fencers, but half of FIE world champions.--------------------------------------
I didn't think about my left handedness.

Lowfreq, a lefty ey? Did you find "fencing" with righties to be eaier to anticipate b/c they are (how should I say) bilateral rather than a mirror image?
