Run with the wolves: The sabre game of Alexey Yakimenko

Alexey Yakimenko has a reputation for being a really cool guy: doesn’t make drama, hangs out with the fencers from the crappy teams, generally gets along with everyone. Once the mask comes down, though, the guy is a beast. His 4m game is one of the best on the circuit and his close-range parries are terrifying. This ain’t pretty or delicate artistry of the sword we’re looking at here.

Turn up the bass and watch him kill ’em all.
