Weekly (?) Attack.gif
Tuesday, August 31, 2014

At least, we'll see how many weeks I can keep people interested or keep this up.


The call is Attack Right.

This is good example of a situation where both fencers are looking for the blade back and forth, and in the end, they both look for the blade and one fencer wants beat attack and the other wants parry-riposte.

Before or after the rule specifying that beats low on the guard should be counted as parries for the opponent, this action should still be called Attack Right. But this isn't entirely about where the blades meet.

What's important is that FotR initiates the action on the blade. He takes the blade before he begins his attack and event though FotL's action is pretty flashy with the big flick over the back -- it's still a counter-attack made into FotR's attack.

Let me know what you think, either about this call, the level of difficulty, or these threads in general.

Easing back into fencing
Tuesday, August 31, 2014

Earlier in the year, I sustained a shoulder injury that needed surgery, putting me out of fencing for these past 8 months. I just got the official clearance for practice, but I'm not allowed to compete yet. Does anyone have advice on exercises or drills I can do to start shaking the rust off?
