  1. That uncomfortable place

    by , 09-18-2014 at 11:05 PM
    Tonight's was hard not physically but emotionally hard. I talked to my coach again about my performance at DVFC(the goo, the bad, the ugly). So today we worked on my mind, which means we did a drill where I could only attack, then a drill where I can only parry riposte, then we did a drill where it was an 8 touché bout and I was down by 4. Now this is where things get interesting from and this is where things get interesting. First I had to get myself in the mind set that I was down 4-0 I had to ...
  2. One goal down

    by , 09-16-2014 at 11:44 PM
    One of the new-season goals was to beat Swarthmore fencers (I'm a Haverford alum), and I got my first chance Friday. The week set up well for it since the focus of Thursday's vet class was tactics and mental preparation for a bout. Lioness and I would fence a five-point bout and then with our coach’s help, analyze it from a tactical standpoint. That meant I fenced those bouts full-tilt boogie rather than at a speed to help Lioness, so I was mentally revved up from the start the next night. ...

  3. Notes 15 Sept 2014 - Stretching the goals

    by , 09-16-2014 at 08:34 AM
    Link to event:
    Before I left, I dosed with ibuprofen and plenty of water. When I checked in for the Div-III, Will asked if I wanted to pay for both. I replied that I’ll hold off on the U (second event) to see how the knee felt. It held up very well, could be due to the additional amount of ibuprofen. No soreness during the event or the next day.

    I was able to see some fencing friends (FencerKen, AboutToThunder, Miles, ...
  4. Kickoff

    by , 09-14-2014 at 08:18 PM
    I got up at 3:30 and drove down from Philadelphia to Fredericksburg, Virginia, seriously drowsy most of the way, drinking Red Bull and coffee and slapping myself in the face to stay alert.

    It was better laid out than the last time I fenced it, though it was still packed pretty tight. They should have replaced the PA with perhaps semaphore, flags, a relay system, or a display screen, because you couldn't make out a thing anyone was announcing. However, communication was good nonetheless ...
  5. Referee seminar—curriculum

    by , 09-11-2014 at 11:29 PM
    In hockey, our referee seminars are made up of various modules that are typically an hour or half-hour long. Some of the curriculum is specified by the national office in Colorado and some is developed at the district level. While it wasn’t this way all the time I’ve been officiating, much of the curriculum is now tailored towards our various officiating levels.

    The stuff that Colorado specifies usually comprises modules on the latest rule changes, points of emphasis, and national-level ...
