The study analyses the role of transformed ancient and modern ideas of natural science and psychology for the modern athletic training process design on the whole and artistic fencing in particular. Artistic fencing means the sport discipline including elements of a single combat and competition with standard appliances being used. We applied analysis of the time factor and its transformation from the objective change measuring tool (Aristotle) to the basis for relativistic understanding of the global processes (Einstein) and basis for subjective perception of reality (Bergson) to differentiate the physical momentary aspect and cultural-psychological activity in the modern artistic fencing. A special emphasis on the timing aspect in artistic fencing makes it possible to identify the core idea of a bout. Process modelling and involved monitoring were applied as the core methods of the theoretical and educational study of the athletic training process. The author came to the conclusion that a special emphasis on timing in artistic fencing must be given to find the lag moments in the opponent-referees-spectators perception system i.e. the temporal gaps in transmission of signals (and responses to the signals) from one or few elements of the system to the others.

Keywords: artistic fencing, timing factor, sport psychology, natural science, sport, ancient heritage, modern natural science.
