This was inevitable, really.
Gu Bongil, World #1, is a sabre prodigy with the most extraordinary attack of any fencer on the circuit. His lunge leaves biomechanics experts speechless and his counterparries are terrifyingly fast, but almost every other element of his game is built around a hilariously incongruous clumsiness. Word has it he’s rather irritating to fence.
Here he is, in all his glory. As always, crank up the music.
I’ve broken it roughly into sections:
- Funny stuff
- Long attacks in the 4m zone
- 4m parries
- Marching attacks
- Attacks on prep and short attacks in the 4m zone
- Moar funny stuff
- War cries

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
– 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.
