  1. Thinking on the strip

    by , 03-28-2012 at 11:43 PM
    It was a nice night - Mike, Will, qatet, and Bridget were there, and Ahren fenced as well! And we refereed one another around, which was even nicer. I am still enjoying being a post-NAC fencer, especially one on spring vacation. It's fun to do fifteen-touch bouts and have some silly fun. qatet and Will were giggling during their bout, which was hilarious. It was wonderful fencing Ahren - I can do really complicated things with tempo and distance, and his actions are so clear and well-executed ...

  2. Anaheim

    I just made reservations for one of the PSA's little day trips - the "California Riviera" one - and bought a day ticket for Disneyland. The plan is, since I'm going to be stuck for several days in a place I might even visit on my own instead of a place I am only going because that's where the fencing is, to do a little sightseeing. Also, fortunately, the Vet-60 is the first event and the last event is the IA, so it doesn't matter if I'm a little tired out. It all makes me feel quite frolicsome ...

  3. Why strip coaching?

    by , 03-27-2012 at 12:36 AM
    I ached last night. I wasn't stiff. I just ached. Three full hours of full-on training takes its toll, especially when bracketed by an hour-and-a-half drive each way.

    My husband gave me a certificate for a massage for Christmas, so I redeemed it today, and left feeling thoroughly unfocused. I felt good enough to go to fencing tonight - Will, qatet, Simon, and Alex the foilist were there. Will took the referee test and passed, and it seemed like a real positive step for him, ...

  4. Sunday night in NJ

    by , 03-26-2012 at 12:39 AM
    I'm on spring break, so I drove up to Tomasz Stusinski's club, which meets at Medeo on Sunday nights. I kept up better than usual with the footwork, and fenced pretty much everyone. My two losses were to Jonathan and Steve D at the end of the evening. Though it was a long night - 6:30 to about 9:45 - I felt pretty healthy except for a tendency to get calf cramps.

  5. How far? Just far enough.

    by , 03-22-2012 at 05:23 PM
    The new kid was ready, so I tested him on the parts of the weapon. He didn't get them right, so I made him go through it several times and then told him to do ten push-ups for getting it wrong and gave him a weapon. He's pretty coordinated so I think I can get him up to speed.

    I gave the boys a quick lecture on distance, emphasizing that in order to hit with your attack, you have to be close enough to hit. I gave them a quick line lesson with push-pull, so that they would hit when ...
