    Must be difficult for referees to ref someone who consistently behaves so badly. I mean, they must dread getting him and have their cards at the ready.

    Mind you, I do like a character on the...

    People take it seriously because it is public.

    I know what you mean. Anyone behaves like that in my club and they need not bother coming back.

    The calculation methods for the Senior Rankings were never designed with this type of format in mind. In light of these issues, British Fencing will review its related policies....

    A most welcome development. But am I misreading the press release - is it only MS he'll be concerned with? Why are BF investing in men only squads?

    Precisely. Otherwise we are teaching one element of fencing and not coaching the game or preparing to win. I've heard it called lots of things - sense of timing, cadence, rhythm or tempo. Whatever...

    USA put out Ukraine in the WS semi-final. Interesting choice of tactics from the Americans in putting Wozniak on last instead of Zagunis. And a very brave counter-time action on the final hit to...

    I don't think it's that. It's a difficult question to answer. Let me put the question back to you. How do you coach fencing without distance?

    As I say, it is a problem, but not the main problem. In fact, in many ways it's a nice problem to have. I've coached fencers on to international youth teams for over 10 years now - only one from an...

    Yup, that is right. The first attack has been met and the attacker's hit is a renewal, all other things being equal. You'd have to be hitting me at the same time as I make the parry/beat before I'd...

    Nice post. There are too many variables and problems for human judgement to be left out of the equation. For example in sabre, one fencer does a double cut to head, the other a quinte riposte. ...
