  1. Henri and Keenan

    by , 02-13-2007 at 12:04 AM
    Today I suited up Henri and Keenan for electric bouting. Keenan was playing a defensive game, but Henri would come forward and make beat-attack and Keenan couldn't defend. Henri even ran him off the end of the strip once. When Keenan tried to attack, Henri would parry and riposte. Henri has done a fair amount of karate, so his stance is square and he isn't making a proper attack with his arm, but Keenan wasn't taking advantage of that. When the score was 14-10, Henri suddenly stopped attacking, ...

  2. skipped out

    by , 02-11-2007 at 05:44 PM
    I had so much work to do this weekend, I couldn't face doing the tournament for which I had signed up, especially as I have ended up refereeing much of the time in my last couple of tournaments. I ducked out and went to the Art Museum to see Thomas Easkins's "The Gross Clinic," then went to the knitting shop and got some needles to replace my broken pair. It was viciously cold and my feet were hurting badly; I have so much steady pain in the ball of my right foot that I fear I have the same thing ...

  3. Why am I fencing?

    by , 02-11-2007 at 04:21 AM
    Since I can't do much at the moment, I've been stepping back and asking myself if I really, really want to be devoting as much time to fencing as I have in the past. Is making the World team when I'm 60 what I really want or just something that I've adopted because others tell me I should want it? What do I really want?

    I love fencing. The 3 weeks I didn't go to practice were miserable and depressing but I concede that much of this was due to pain and not knowing if I'd ever walk ...

    A colleague stopped by my room to talk to me, so I was a minute late for meeting up with my boys. When I got there, they had all gone ahead except John, who was a little tardy--they apparently assumed I was ahead of them. John and I sauntered along and talked, taking one of two routes to the college gym, and when we got there about five of the boys weren't there--they had gone back the other way to look for me.

    I just started practice without them, suiting Beau and David up to do ...

  5. Practice Exam Question 59

    by , 02-09-2007 at 03:48 PM
    As a sabre fencer, I NEVER see time expire with a tied score and while I would expect the fencers to be placed at the on guard line, I'd like to find the CORRECT answer.

    Question 59: If time expires with a tied score in either a pool or direct elimination bout, the fencers are replaced on guard:
    a. At the position occupied by the fencers at the end of the previous round
    b. At the on guard line.
    c. If the score is tied, the fencers take up the positions occupied ...
