I fenced last night. In truth, I did not fence but took a group lesson. It was a good one. I did not free fence as I am giving my heel a bit more time to heal. It is only a bit stiff from the lunging. Matt recommended I try and find a heel cup and I hope to do that today. ( Or at least try to look for one.)
I learned a new move last night. I have seen something like it done many times...or elements of it...but I never do it. In truth I don't think I can make it work often.
Sorry...I need to leave myself a cryptic reminder or two:
Strong beat...semi circular beat could work...or normal...just stronger.
Over the bell jar and the rose.
Move past the point.
Lay blade in the hand behind your mask.
I need to work on traps. I almost never do it. I get caught up in just fencing, rather than working on things I should practice.
Due to injury and unemployment I am not fencing as much as I would like or need. It cannot be helped, so I will try not to worry about it. I have enough to worry about to keep my plate full.
