One of the best things I ever did in fencing was to attend Coaches College at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. It was 2006 and the last training week for that summer. I surely did not know much at the time. It seemed hard then and so easy now.
A small part of the written test was on fencing vocabulary. On every dorm door (There were many.), there was taped one of the vocabulary words you needed to know. The one pictured above was on my door. At the end of testing...after I passed and was heading home...I peeled it off the door and taped it to my hard case. It stayed there for many years. At some point, it fell off and I thought I lost it. Recently I found it in one of my fencing notebooks.
For some reason, I value it more than any medal or trophy. Weird...huh?
