  1. 5/27, 5/29 bouts, lessons, bouts

    by , 05-31-2014 at 09:19 AM
    One of my biggest problems is patience. The temptation of the hit makes me fall into traps opponents set. I find myself chasing, too. I'm not setting things up the way I should.
    This is all I'll be working on for the forseeable future.

    I'm not waiting to see the mistake my opponents make. I'm thinking this stems from a lack of patience and incorrect distance. If I'm too close, I can't see the oppertunity.
    My deep attacks are too low. Coming in with my arm down only ...

  2. Notes 30 May 2014

    The foot has healed (heeled?) nicely. Two visits to the MD's office for stitch removal and now I'm taking it easy. A few lunges here-and-there to see how it feels. I should still be able to attend DVFC's Foil event next Saturday on 8 June. The Div II field looks pretty strong with Dave Chen who is also in the following Vet event.

    by , 05-25-2014 at 08:37 AM
    I didn't have any particular technichal action I wanted to work on Thursday.

    I really just wanted to enjoy epee.

    I did work on movement, distance. Teasing.
    Fenced 9, won some, lost some.

    Noteable bouts: Eric L: Eric bought a french grip weapon and was trying it out. I lost the first 5, unable to get his new distance. I adjusted my tactics, using simple beat-attack and won the next 2. (I explained to him after that that's a risk of the french ...
