Class act: Montano (ITA) v Occhiuzzi (ITA)

Nothing too fancy today, just a nice clean finish to the world’s most chillaxed semifinal between Aldo Montano and Diego Occhiuzzi at the Brooklyn grand prix. Bizarrely, I’m not saying that with a hint of sarcasm. Check out the full match below, it’s neat.

The last point has some genuine flair, with some  magnificent poise and control of balance from Montano. It’s a bit of a cliche to say that his foorwork is superb, but it’s nice to see such a clear and elegant reminder.

Big prep is big, but the distance is so good he pulls it off without a hitch.

Anyway if you like slick blade actions, check out this bout. Lovely flow, ridiculous counterparries, the two best of which featured in Montano’s recent compilation video.
Official version is here, but the commentary… *headdesk*

Super cool bout. Go and watch it. Lots of fun.

This work is made possible by the research work done by the staff and students at the Sydney Sabre Centre, so if you like this I would really appreciate you leaving a review on Facebook and Google – 5 stars would be great but even better if you tell us why!
 
We read every single review and are always looking to improve how we do things because ultimately Sydney Sabre is all about  sharing this great sport and making it accessible to everyone. I know that this sport is a big part of who I am today, and wish this place was around when I was growing up.
 
If that isn’t enough motivation for you, here’s another reason: we will give you a stackable 5% discount off on anything we sell (services and stuff) for each review that you leave for us, for one transaction. You can spend it on yourself or use it to subsidise a friend (or a whole bunch of friends, if you want to bring along a horde).
 
Thanks in advance.
