  1. Notes 10 March 2014

    by , 03-10-2014 at 09:54 PM
    We found an old TV cart at the Univ, moved the TV and VHS-player off then set it up with a scoring machine and a set of Challenger reels. What's odd is not everyone wants to use the electrics. They like fencing 'normal'. Weird. The kids at the Y are the same way: They find it easier to move between bouts and I suspect wearing the wires makes them feel uncomfortable.

    Went to the Foil Open at Liberty. Initial seeding was 44 of 55. Final place was 44 of 55. One goal met: I didn't drop. ...

  2. A new plateau or what practice is for

    by , 03-08-2014 at 10:21 AM
    Last week, after a really good lesson, Maestro said "You're no longer a crappy fencer. But now you're going to start losing bouts to better fencers by a lot."
    This weeks practice bouts proved that to be the case.
    On the strip, I'm beginning to think about setting up a touch, rather than simply hitting. I've started to work on 1, 2, 3 while bouting and so far it's been frustrating. Very.

    Once again, I need to remind myself that these are practice bouts. I'm supposed ...

  4. New fencing shoes

    by , 03-07-2014 at 10:21 AM
    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 ...
  5. A bad night, new information, moving forward

    by , 03-07-2014 at 10:20 AM
    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 ...
