    That's fine Ronald, we'll just give up then. Let pessimism rule and save our money.

    My understanding is that we are a recognised Commonwealth sport but not in the Commonwealth Games. As such we are not allowed to have our championships in the same country as the main games within 3...

    Coaching the Distance Game

    I've felt the results of it and it continues over time. The coach always delivers their action at the same depth so the riposte is always with a full straight arm. Result: when I start coaching the...

    Hi, is Toni going to be in Szombathely this year? I will be there with a British Fencing group. It would be good to see him again. I met one of his fencers there a few years ago, but he wasn't there....

    Then flyboy you would be wrong. All you have demonstrated is the lack of strength in depth of British Cadet fencing.

    If YC, the WF fencer who won the silver medal, asked me to choose between the...

    Sorry, but 11 and 12 year olds should be prioritising age groups below cadets. There are not enough weekends to avoid clashes.

    Gawd knows where that came from. What I meant was The Cornmill Pub, a traditional pub/restaurant with traditional fayre.
  10. Nottingham (Winton Cup) good place to eat?

    Stapleford, very close to Novotel, Vivos Italian, would need to book.

    Toton, The Beekeeper, nice pub/restaurant. Traditional gayer.

    Someone clearly has not been to the rugby scrum of an Italian cadet event I went to one year.

    I do however take the point of the separation of fencers and spectators. We are really bad at this in...

    But these fencers were sent to Senior World Cup team events? Surely this is a better level for them to get experience, but they can't go?

    I wish to confirm that I am human.

    I sometimes forget that I have been at this fencing game for some 30 years now and some, especially parents of new cadets have not been around as long.

    Could I please point out that the EYCs is an England event and uses the England U15 rankings to seed. They do NOT use the British Cadet Rankings. (Though I think they consult other rankings to make...

    I am all for discussion, it involves asking questions and evaluating answers. What I object to is the automatic assumption that BF have sold the fencers short in some way, those of us who try to look...

    Commentators are expected to give opinions, whether you chose to agree with or respect those opinions is up to you. I would far rather watch the fencing and listen to David and Karim than not watch...
