    Yeah, but what if you hadn't straightened your arm before your opponent's attack started. LOL!

    In terms of results, we can point to successful nations that are highly decentralised and others that are centralised. For me that makes the argument irrelevant. In an ideal world you'd have both...

    I really can't agree with this statement. The quantity and quality of fencing and refereeing was substantially beyond anything we see here.

    There is nothing logical or reasonable in what you have said.
