  1. A Different Perspective

    by , 03-21-2014 at 11:37 PM
    Friday foil class, six (one advanced, three intermediates, two beginners). One of the beginners might be a keeper. She sounds as if she likes it enough to want to continue after she finishes up this semester of school.

    Drill. Slow extension drill to advance and then lunge distance and finally advance lunge distance. I was finding the retreats to be late and wondered how far I could extend before committing to an action. Another decision point. If Iím almost all the way extended ...

    Wednesday foil class, seven (three advanced, two intermediates, two beginners).

    Drill. Slow extension with attack over advance distance, then lunge distance, then with the defender option to pull the distance.

    Line of Death, plain. Still cannot esquive well at all and tend to do it too early, but gosh that weapon already looks like itís in my face. Iím told I need another step, which is obviously true. Going to need nerves of steel to get this one.

    Monday foil class, five (two advanced, two intermediates, one beginner).

    Drill. Slow extension drill worked through advances, lunges, parries, disengages. Struggled to find that decision point again.

    Leader Tag, plain. Distance. I always keep it too close as follower, and I feel like my opponent keeps it to big when Iím leading. Second intention works occasionally, but it and remises are the most reliable tools.

    Slow extension drill with distance ...

  5. March NAC, Memphis - DIV III WF

    by , 03-17-2014 at 12:10 AM
    At what point should one begin to have expectations in a tournament? I expect a lot from myself, mostly not in terms of where I actually place, but in how Iím using the tools that I have. Sometimes I can tell Iím using them to the best of my current ability, and they arenít good enough yet. Other times, I canít discern what mistakes Iím making. Both are frustrating, but the second is worse. Today was a mixture of the two.

    I did have a goal of not being DFL. It seemed reasonable because ...
