No reply RIP?
Pretty loose with the insults aren't you RIP? Who are you by the way?
The great tradition of combat relay, how could I have forgotten that. The thrill of the moment when the competitor with the baton chases after the next man in the opposing team and tries...
Here's my theory:
The problem stems from a fixation with Olympic medals which must be obtained at the cost of everything else.
With the inclusion a few years back of women's Olympic epee and...
I already know what I'd do. I was interested in what other people thought.
Ok, you've just finished your bout against an opponent who's recently flown in from a West African country.
A sweaty hand is offered for you to shake. What would you do?
Not such a hypothetical...
'Scottish Fencing would like to encourage participation from representatives of nations which do not regularly attend this event. By giving a year's notice, we hope to...
Great bronze match between Swiss and Russia men's team epee, very exciting finish.
Isn't it good!
Being able to watch it live is just the business. I like the commentary, the video quality is great. I caught Georgina Users commentary earlier in the day and enjoyed that. Then...
Opening ceremony starting within the hour:
I've heard a rumour that Kim Kardashian is going to mime the Tartastani national anthem and there is going...
Can't we just buy one of these and sew our own plastic tabs onto the inside of whatever mask bib?
"The Contour-Fit Plus strap can be...
I have one of these too.
Why don't Leon Paul offer the upgrade as part of their mask refurb service?
All that's required is stitching a strap to the bib. How hard can that be? Can we do it...
The coaches keeping their distance coaching cards close to their chest!
I'm not a qualified coach but I fence epee and I coach my girls when we practise away from the club. Here's what I do.
I'll be saving my serious boozing for the vets Winton when I don't have the family in tow, just my hair metal band mate Mark Fenton. :silly:
I think the rest of the NW team will uphold the...
Here's a better one. Not as flashy but perfect time to go. That is the hardest thing for me, to be close enough to be able to get the hit in one 'tempo' when you notice the opponent move forward but...
Terrible? I don't think so. Telegraphed a little because he bounces down into it but none the less very fast because of that bounce. So fast he overcooks it and lands the hit on the back.
Check out this video at 49 seconds.
Thanks for the tips. I've been salivating reading through the menus!
I was curious to know what a traditional gayer was as I'm not sure I fancy that for tea.
Probably stay local I think. Looking at the map Beeston lies between the hotel which is just off the M1 and the city centre. We like any food but there's four of us, two adults and two kids with the...
I'm going down to Nottingham this weekend for the Winton Cup. In fact the whole family is coming down as one of my daughters is fencing too and we're staying over Saturday night in a nearby...
In the spirit of medieval chivalry any parents with a gripe about a decision should be offered trial by combat in which the parent fences off against a tournament "Champion" as nominated by DT.
<I'm an epeeist so what do I know!> disclaimer
This thread reminded me of a you tube video I had seen. One guy had gone to the trouble of compiling decision after decision categorised by action...
I'm interested to see the scores on the tableau as there was this new kid 'Jan Willis?' (from Cornwall, I think) who put the cat amongst the pigeons.
