The study analyses the modern artistic fencing training system designed with a special priority given to the ancient bout visualizing tools applied in the modern cinematography. Artistic fencing means the fencing sport discipline applying cold steels and their analogues, with the competitive process designed as team competitions where the teams compete in stage (single, dual or collective) bouts. Special priority in this context in the training process is given both to the physical fitness and performance technique excelling aspects and the artistic taste development ones. Cinematography plays a special role in the modern artistic taste development process, with the appreciation of the base ideas of fencing art being largely driven by the ancient duel models. Due knowledge of and skills in the ancient fencing models help develop an aesthetic foundation for the modern artistic fencing training systems.

Keywords: artistic fencing, aesthetics, sport psychology, sport, ancient heritage.
