Experimental: Intervention: Proprioceptive Training
The intervention will be the implementation of a proprioceptive training program for the fencing athletes in the intervention group.
In this study the training program will be developed for 12 weeks and will be applied during the heating of the athletes, three times a week and the duration of each session is 30 minutes. Each week will be chosen three of the 14 exercises adapted for fencing athletes, and preferably one of each category. The categories have exercises with different levels of difficulty and can change the exercises occur by different proposed levels or the complexity of the exercise by changing category. The training program will be implemented by the same evaluator over the 12 weeks.
Other: Proprioceptive Training

Each week will be chosen three of the 14 exercises adapted for fencing athletes , and preferably one of each category.
Placebo Comparator: Control
The control group will not make the intervention and will continue with the usual training fencing.
Other: Control Group
The control group will not make the intervention and will continue with usual training fencing.
- Onset muscle [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The muscular reaction time will be assessed by electromyography during Lunge Test.
- Muscle Strength [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The muscle strength of ankle will be assessed by isokinetic dynamometer.
- Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The SEBT will be used to measure the dynamic neuromuscular control.
- Drop Vertical Jump Test (DVJT) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The DVJT be used to assess the height of the heels, from surfaces 30, 40 and 50cm .
- Cumberland Ankle Instability Tools (CAIT) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The CAIT will be used to assess whether the ankle has istabilidade
- Injury questionnaire [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]This questionnaire will be used to assess the number of injuries and to joints they occurred.
