"WHAT'S GOING ON"... Using the environmental information before them, a fencer experiences what is seen (vision), what is heard (audition), what they feel (touch). Knowing what is happening (perception) in the moment of play requires, memory of your experiences in game playing, practice and training. A good fencer is trained to disregard (filters out), unimportant environmental information. They focus and identify the environmental queues (game queues), that create opportunities for their goal achievement.

"WHAT TO DO"?... is knowing what fencing actions (tactics) are needed for accomplishing the goals of the game. The activities of the response-selection stage (What To DO?) begin once those of the stimulus identification stage (What's Going On?) have provided the fencer with sufficient information about the nature of the environment. Using this information, the performer must now decide what, if any, response should be made. If the fencer decides that a response is appropriate, he or she selects one from available movements, such as attacking, defending with blade or distance. Thus, in this stage a translation of sorts occurs between the sensory input that has been identified and one of several possible forms of movement output.

"HOW TO DO-IT"?... is knowing how to do the fencing actions (technique) , needed for goal achievement. If a sport fencer demonstrates "ideal form and technique" in blade and foot work ("HOW TO DO IT"?) and cannot react successfully ("WHAT'S GOING ON"? & "WHAT TO DO"?) to her opponents actions during the game, the fencer is not completely skilled to achieve the goal of the game.The goal of sport fencing is, diversity in responses (e.g. successfully parrying an attack in a number of ways and setting up a successful riposte). The appropriate assessment of fencing skill would seem to involve observing the outcome of performance in a bouting environment, rather than evaluating the technique of movement.Moving in a particular way is an index of success only in those activities for which the goal is to exhibit a specified technique.
