View Full Version : the jedi versus the fencer

-14th January 2004, 23:56
seriously,do you think a fencer would be better if he/she had the mind control over oneself of some one like the jedi Obi wan?
No anger, fear or anxiety etc what do u think?:rambo:

Absolutely! Anger, fear, and anxiety are emotions that cloud rational thinking. When you fence you must strategize rationally. When anger takes over, you tend to overreact. When you fear, you do not take chances, or perhaps over-analyze, therby missing opportunities. Anxiety can just stop the thinking process in it's tracks. Control is a good thing if one can master it. It requires work and discipline. It applies to all martial arts. (I think I'll go meditate now!!) :sam:

Sorry, but I moved this to Chit Chat as it is not really a Foil question.

-15th January 2004, 09:55
it applies to foil epee and sabre, my young padawan, be mindful of your idle thumbs upon your keyboard, maybe they would be of more use upon your chosen weapon :tongue:

Dumb, perhaps no, DITZY, ...................yep!! :grin:

Okay, time to confirm my geek status...

Want a lightsabre that will stand up to combat (though you may want to pull your blows a little).

These are not cheap but they are the coolest thing ever and my best purchase ever, somewhere I have a vid of two guys using them in daylight... it looks like CGI it's so bright.

Try instead

This one (http://www.parksabers.com)

This one works... silly Chiefy

do you recon u could get away with using lightsaber in competition?

-4th February 2004, 09:34
One question. We have the lightsabre. Where the hell are the lightepee and lightfoil?

I can just see Luke and Darth arguing over who killed who due to ROW.

-4th February 2004, 10:57
working on lightsabre for use at the club.

reason- very large bet that I can't.

so far got it working ( it lights up, doesn't beak unless you fleche the floor)- just doesn't seem to plug into box and give the right lights.

Light epee /foil - give me a couple of months.

the force is strong in this one.

has anyone got a lightsaber from www.parksabers.com , if so tell me- i want to know if they're any good

-4th February 2004, 11:49
hey bucket, you making yer own lightsaber, or adapting someone elses? if you suceed post it - i wanna know! (dunno how lightsaber in a foil comp would go down)

could be wireless fencing if could use radio signals from pommel to box

-4th February 2004, 19:19
Yes, I have one... yes they are great... somewhere I have a vid clip of two of my mates using them in a daylight duel, they look like computer generated imagery they are so bright. As soon as I've finished moving house I'll search through my CD's and try and find it for you.



-4th April 2004, 13:33
Ok, I've moved and am stuck in a flat whilst I look for a house to buy, worst of all I'm on a narrowband connnection.

But I now have the video uploaded if you want to see a little duel.

Hopefully this will work.

An alternate place to get lightsabers is Lightech (http://www.lightechindustries.com)
some nice components if you have the money.
