Abstract: The purpose of this study was to develop a manual which will aid students in developing the techniques of timing, scoring, judging and directing conventional foil fencing bouts. A supplementary series of seven loopfilms was developed to offer students the opportunity to study fencing actions from the director's viewpoint. Ten judges with extensive fencing backgrounds were chosen to evaluate the manual and suggest revisions. These evaluations were returned by nine of the ten judges. The comments from the nine judges led to the conclusion that the Manual for Officials of Conventional Foil Fencing should be of great value to students interested in officiating fencing.
