Hey my name as you probably guessed is Nick and I'm a BTEC performing arts student from Exeter in devon. I started on the basics of fencing when I was about 6 with my dad who used to fence, so back then I was using a size 5 blade and learning the footwork. Then after a few years break I started going to fencing lessons at Exmouth Community College where I was fencing foil. Unfortunately the day shifted to a thursday when I was already doing Archery so I ended up stopping (BIG MISTAKE), then about two years ago my interest was resparked and I started reading up on fencing technique and so on and started working on general fitness and fingerplay, then this last september a brilliant oppurtunity presented itself Exeter College started running fencing during one of my free periods and so I started fencing Epee and last weekend went to my first competition the Plymouth Open and I love fencing again, WHAT A RUSH.

So far as I've been able to make out so far the craziest people are mostly sabreists:confused: :transport

hi nick welcome to the board. this could be the first smart alec response but people who fence with the sabre are sabreurs. sorry but couldn't help myself although i reckon your assessment is right on the money. By the way I fence foil if you hadn't already guessed.
