  1. Evening

    Got out of work finally. As usually I'm horribly behind and desperately trying to keep up at work. I had like 250 emails and like 40 voicemails to return when I left for the day.

    I have tomorrow off at least. Getting two fillings done.

    I got my vest and epee arm in the mail today. I'll see if I can sketch out a basic epee lesson for the dojo tomorrow afternoon. Place doesn't start up until like 8 so plenty of time.

    I fixed the grip on on the bond ...
  2. dojo

    I swung by Mike B's dojo yesterday. I didn't get to do much fencing, instead they wanted me to do lessons.

    I kind of wish they had mentioned what they wanted before I came. I winged it without a prepared lesson plan or anything.

    I ordered a coaching jacket + epee arm. I like fencing more than lesson giving but if they're going to have me do that during the summer I'll put some basic lessons together and have the right gear for it.

    This is actually the ...
  3. Heat wave

    With projected temperatures at 110 I decided to finally break down and buy an air conditioner. There was a run on them so the only one I could get today was a portable one. Kind of weird looking but it works great.

    Also I did some minor gunsmithing this week. My cousin sold me this old beretta 950 that was jamming. It had a flaw in the machining which was causing the slide to stick. My cousin had tried to grease the parts that were rubbing and then assumed it was normal that ...
  4. 4th of July

    We're still having the heat wave in Michigan. I made myself a nice dinner for the fourth. I had some steak along with corn on the cob and a nice bowl of cherries with a rum and coke to drink.

    It worked out pretty well.

    I've been spending some time contemplating what my game plan will be for the next season coming up. I want to upgrade my Epee rating from a D to a C.

    I've had a lot of success with the bouncing footwork, however my endurance hasn't ...
  5. End of the season

    Yesterday night was the last night of schoolcraft's fencing. I had a best of 3 15 touch match with Doug T. We both one one then the 3rd one he won by one touch.

    I played around a little too. One of the newbie fencers challenged me to a chair match. Basically that's where one of the fencers is able to use footwork and the other guy (me) is sitting in a chair.

    He was smart enough not to barrel in and tried picking at me from a distance like he should and won 10-4. ...
