To paraphrase Ferris Bueller." Fencing moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Second event of the season at UNC last weekend. An A2 with 42 competitors. Tough field. Finished 14th. Top 16. Not bad for an old guy...not great. In my journal, I have rarely posted results of tournaments. I don't know why I am doing it now. I am sure as soon as I am in an event where I stink really bad, it will stop.
In my lessons of late, I have been working on a lot of new things. I have mastered none of them, but I think the influx of new things is helping me open up my game a bit. Basics are always needed in training. But this has kept things fresh and interesting for me. If I could just get a handle on 3 or 4 new actions/preps it might be a real game changer. As always, I am grateful to my coach for taking me in this direction.
