  1. Notes 2014 Jan 25

    A parent left a note saying they felt 25 students needed more than 3 coaches.

They love to narc on each other.

    So we were asked to bring on another coach and see if Jane could return, that makes the available coaches: Myself, Larry, Mark, Jane and Ethan.

  2. 1/24/2014 ~ Setting it up ~ Beat-Go

For a large part of the population, figure skating only gets their attention in Olympic years.

    So due to the bad weather conditions I was the only one at club tonight. Which means I got an 1.5-2hr private lesson!!! My coach kicked my butt. She broke me down and built me up. Ripped a part of my game out and said here replace it with this piece you will be a better fencer. All I can remember is slow down, stop, do it like this, fix your back leg, explode of the back foot, change footwork, take the blade, balance, balance, arm then foot, arm then foot! If this is how the top level fencers train ...
