The article considers the practical grounds for integration of the relevant philosophical, psychological and educational aspects of the education and training process in the competitive artistic fencing groups. The authors have demonstrated benefits of the sport process strategy designed based on the key notion of eidos in the context of ideas of Plato, ancient Greek philosopher. The core role of eidos in the sport process design is demonstrated in the article by implementation of the P.Y. Galperin theory in the practical education process of the artistic fencing team. The authors applied a variety of tools including structural analysis, comparisons and expert assessments to offer and substantiate the practical recommendations to reset the practical goals of the artistic fencing training process with due emphasis on both the motivations of the trainer-instructors and athletes for competitive accomplishments and eidos of every competitive bout.

Keywords: artistic fencing, eidos, sport philosophy, Plato, sport education, ancient heritage.
