The adult class was there, and one junior foilist. I did a little footwork and then watched some international sabre - Marti and the Chinese, Lapkes and Tarantino, etc. - while standing on the balancing ball, the half-ball thing. So even though I didn't get much fencing, I watched some fencing and I did do a workout.
The only sabre fencers to show, eventually were Frederick and Jessi1. Jess was fencing left-handed because she injured her hand fencing Frederick a couple of weeks
An apple slice with a hunk of very fresh wasabi on it.
I could see through time.
I'm very excited. Yesterday I got a x-ray of my foot, it isn't broken which is a huge relief but I severly bruised the bone. So I'm still in some pain but motrin can solve all problems......at least for the next 4-6 hours. Which is all the time I need since my event today starts at 1 and there are only 4...maybe 5 people competing in my event according to ask fred. Since one person has yet to pay the registration fee he might not be coming, it's a small RYC in St. Louis and he's coming all the way
Pics of the first time I tried to wire an epee.. Those wires just have a mind of their own. Watch the LP 'how to' guide online and the armourer there has a plastic 'jig' to hold the wires in place before the go up the tang.
I need one. Or I'll figure out another solution using spare parts around the house.
Close-up pics of the blade. These are the worst areas. It works and I'll use it until it stops. The wires are glued in place, not moving so they should be safe. Just
