Still looking for a new home? I'm interested
Well my Hi-Techs have finally reached the point of needing retirement. They have served me very well, considering the abuse I put them through. I tend to practice 3-4 times a week for 2-3 hours per session, and usually two tournaments a month. I was very interested in trying out the Nike Air Zooms, but just couldn't pull the trigger on $175.00. So I started to look at the adidas, but still the price tag was too crazy. I have opted for the Adidas Barricade (7 i think). The design is very similar
In a word last night sucked. Mentally I was not there completely and it showed in my form. Large arm movements, sloppy lunging, sloppy footwork was the theme for the day. During bouting I was able to pull off a few attacks and land touches because of all the work my coach put into me kicked in by instinct. The only thing that I did do right eventually, it took me three times in a row to do was the first part of a combination attack. I still have to figure out what the last part of the attack will
With the past two weeks of practice dedicated strictly to "competion practice", I am feeling pretty good about this weekends tournament (ROC). Despite setting a 'lofty' goal, I feel like I am ready. Have put in a lot of work on my footwork and it seems like things are comming together. I will say that everytime I start to feel pretty confident about where I am at in my fencing, I end up with a flop, so I am trying to stay level-headed and just fence my game. This event looks to be pretty strong
They keep pushing the times around. As I type this, it's 54 foilists. I'm thinking about pulling out - it's gotten too big and I'm worries about the parking and getting out for the Y.
When I signed-up I might have been number 6 which would have been a nice small event. I’m happy for Liberty that they have 11 strips and are getting a lot of people to come. But wow, 54 fencers will push that space.
