  1. 1/9/2014 bouts

    by , 01-11-2014 at 10:16 AM
    Not a lot to say really...
    Prepared for Sunday's tournament at BCAF-W.
    Frustrated with opposition-4. I thought I could not get the timing right. I spoke to the Maestro about it, who replied, "It's not a timing problem, but distance."
    So much of this sport is just that.

    Noteable bouts: Alex K: Our 3 5s all went to 4-4. Lots of doubles for the 5th too. Fun times.
    Marie: Once I adjusted my distance, I was able to score 1 or 2 opposition-4 hits.

    I haven't been posting much, because things have been busy and my mind has been other things. I was on winter break from school, which you'd think would be a time for me to relax, but instead it's usually the only time I have both the inclination and the time to tackle things like going through some of the things in the basement (my mother's things, my daughter's things, plus our own stored stuff) and wading through the clothes in my closets. Except for outings to the gym to lift and do aerobic, ...

    After the flu, Christmas and New Year holidays I'm glad to be getting back into a regular training schedule.
    Once a week is not close to enough.

    Fenced 5 last night. I thought, after all that time off, my distance would be a mess, my timing would be off. I thought I'd forgotten how to fence essentially. It was not quite as bad as I'd expected.
    Worked on tempo change (feet) and opposition.
    Noteable bouts: Ben W: Scored 9 on him. Was able to see his preperations ...
  4. Tournament playlist

    These are the songs currently on my playlist for footwork and tournament listening. They're all energetic, with a beat that makes me want to dance. Many NSFW, to say the least. A lot of people have playlists for tournaments that are either angry or ferociously fast, with a hyper beat. I like something closer to fencing tempo.

    by , 01-01-2014 at 09:27 PM
    We held what is turning into our annual Winter Break event. Results are at There were 24 fencers from four different clubs: West Chester YMCA, Easton YMCA, Avon Grove Charter School and Collegium Charter School.
