I have been coaching since July so I have very little experience.
I've been giving epee lessons to a beginner at our university club. He's picked up everything really quickly, but he is very reluctant to lunge. He's a 6'4 rugby player, I know he has enough power in his legs to do a very good lunge, which I can get him to do in lessons when I make him, but on the piste he never lunges, just steps.
How do I get him to start lunging when he's actually fencing? Any tricks or techniques I can use?
Any help would be great, thanks!
