For the first time in years, I feel like a 14 year old boy. I cannot tell you how much I look forward to fencing with the members of my group. I literally dream about it regularly. It has become one of the few things in my life that actually completely de-stresses me.
I’ve uploaded some video from our Saturday fencing practice. Greg Hinchcliff is our Swordmaster and he is just amazing. I have learned so much from him in the last few months. I do not know why I didn’t start doing this sooner.
This week we worked on controlling your foe’s sword and getting inside his point to attack closely. It is not an easy task and requires some speed and skill.
