Fenced in Chapel Hill tonight and it was one hot gym. Fenced poorly, but had a good lesson.
After all this time of watching Coach give lessons, which truly fascinates me, I asked a question.
"Coach, why do you change sides with a student periodically, when you are not out of room on the strip?"
This may seem simple to a lot of fencers, but it eluded me.
He explained to me. After all this time, I finally ask a question about something I have witnessed for years. I can't believe I never asked long ago.
Sometimes it is the simple things that are the most fascinating thing about this sport.
