  1. Breakages

    by , 10-04-2007 at 09:15 PM
    My finger was no longer swollen and nice and pink so I went to the OTHER fencing club (the JCC being closed for Jewish holidays) and fenced left-handed epee.

    Coach was right; it's a waste of my time to try to fence left-handed. However, the intent here was social interaction with the goal of not turning into my mother (who has dementia). Social interaction was achieved but I made the mistake of picking up a sabre with my right hand and lightly fencing a left-handed beginner sabre ...

  2. Further Incentive

    by , 10-03-2007 at 07:43 PM
    I've missed two days of work since becoming ill late Monday and I think that was due to diet rather than catching some bug that no one else appears to have caught. We spent the weekend at a skiffy convention and just about every time I do that, I get sick. Given that the con suite has potato chips and soft drinks and I indulge in these at conventions and seldom at other times, I suspect I simply ODed on starch and caffeine.

    However, the symptoms Monday caught me off-guard as what ...

  3. Weekend Fencing.

    A recent post in the forum led me to give some thought to the tactical wheel and I realized that I really didn't have a clue what the tactical wheel was or how to use it as a learning tool. Thus, I made a tactical wheel and input a small amount of info about each spoke and hung it off my web site while I do a little more research and try to gain a better understanding of how it works.

    I suspect it is much like writing in that first, you learn the rules and then you break them. [The ...

  4. School Practice

    by , 09-27-2007 at 10:13 PM
    Tonight, I drove over to the OTHER fencing club and joined for the year. No, I'm not quitting the first club.

    The first club is for lessons and learning and preparing for competitions.

    The second club is for hanging out with friends, goofing off a little, and relaxing while having fun, getting some exercise, and possibly learning a thing or two.

    I fenced two bouts of EPEE left-handed with friends. Obviously, I'm not going to be fencing in the finals, but ...

  5. Live Long & Prosper

    by , 09-26-2007 at 05:55 PM
    Today, I saw a doctor about my blue finger, which technically is sort of a blueish purple rather than a nice shade of blue.

    The diagnosis: torn ligaments.

    What IS this problem I'm having with ligaments?

    Bloodflow to the finger is fine and he said the only time he's seen this before has been with torn ligaments. I haven't a clue how this could have happened since the symptoms began while I was DRIVING and during a time when I hadn't done any fencing in a few ...
