  1. This is why she is the coach

    by , 02-07-2014 at 11:02 AM
    Last night was freakin awesome! We working a few drills that were designed to make you uncomfortable and deal with that situation so that you can deal with it on the strip. So my coach was drilling me and yeah she did some double, triple, feint beat and caught me square in the chest really hard. She said I'm sorry, I said that's OK that is why we wear this stuff. Her footwork and blade movement were magnificent and had me confused, and in a slight panic, I could not retreat fast enough and I could ...

  2. Notes 05 Feb 2014 - Hope for Spring

    Sunday at Club was fun. My turn to go into the side room and handle any students that were either too rowdy or did not want to play with others. Directed and coached Foil, Epee and Saber. Plus some kids who were just hanging out. Most of the kids are happy to learn when lessons are given. Explained to both Foil and Epee that where the tip goes, the rest of the blade follows.

    I made it to the doctor today. I had taken a risk making an appointment on a teaching day, and when snow was forecast I figured I'd have to cancel the appointment, but instead school was cancelled. It took me over an hour to get to the doctor, a trip that normally takes me half an hour, and once I got there I hung out in the examination room for a good while because although I was on time, everyone else had showed up late.
