  1. Bouts 11/21 - Distance, relaxation, movement

    by , 11-23-2013 at 08:40 AM
    That about sums it up really.

    Fenced 8 bouts, with some rest in between. I'm back at the distance drawing board. Still too close. Dridge has said to me more than once, if you're not sure how you got hit, you need more distance. There were many touches like that on Thursday.
    Noteable bouts: Joe Cohen: I got a sweet hit to the chest on him simply by acceleration. This is something I've been meaning to experament with for a while. Need to do some more work with the idea. ...
  2. My Fencing Bag is not a T.A.R.D.I.S.

    There's an old saying about "Cheap, fast, and good. Pick 2." I have a similar problem with food. Due to the nature of my work, I am often in places where I cannot buy food or have access to refrigerator, water, microwave, etc. I'm also often working while trying to eat. I also have a somewhat restricted diet for health reasons and most of the foods i would prefer fall into that black hole of "no restaurants in the area" and/or "does not travel well without the risk of food poisoning". Packing ...

    I'm not pictured because I'm taking the picture.

    Update: Re-read the article. Mark may have said some incorrect stuff in there.

  4. Good night of fencing; lessons from work not everything is a crisis

    by , 11-21-2013 at 09:26 AM
    I just completed a course on project management for work. If you have ever taken a project management course then you know, timelines, deliverables, take the emotion out of everything, communicate clearly,plan for as much as possible, and your project plan should always be evolving(changing). Do these things and you will never be in crisis or at least you will diminish your chances of being in crisis. That is probably the most applicable thing to fencing as I have ever heard. In fencing we are always ...
  5. Last night's bouts and lesson - Relax!

    by , 11-20-2013 at 08:05 PM
    Another jumpin' night on the FAP epee floor.
    I only fenced 6 bouts, oddly enough. Work had me beat, and I was dehydrated. Gotta remember to drink water during the day.
    Bouts of note: Not any really. My distance was crap. My attacks were late. I was stepping in with my arm bent. Enough said...

    Lesson: Now here's where my night got interesting. During extension refinement, Maestro was becoming frustrated with me because I simply could not relax my arm. At one point ...
