Last night was the second of my classes at Mid-South and Coach Miller was there.
I had never had a group lesson with him before, only private lessons. It was a good experience and he made it seem like a private lesson. That is hard to explain. I now understand why I have met people that said he was the best teaching experience they had ever had. ( These people were NOT serious fencers. They just recognized excellent teaching skills) I also enjoyed hearing Coach Miller talk about epee being the most complicated of the three weapons and why at the higher levels there are so few repeat champions.
I would also have to say that Coach Miller was lucky to have the group of students he had.
( That sounds immodest, but I think it is true.)
I came to class not in the best mental state as there are about to be a mass lay off at my company. I do not have a clue where I would work if this happened. My occupation is no longer in this country. It has been effecting me on strip.
There is s slight misunderstanding (that I need to clear up with Matt) that also made it hard to focus.
Even with the distractions and gloom it was a great class and I enjoyed it.
Tonight I head to Chapel Hill for another class.
