    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...

    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...

    A problem for most, but a problem to be solved. All of the international fencers I'm coaching at the moment are from state schools. You could look it as a relative cost - relative to the amount of...

    Nope. Just saying if there is no management support for the sport, i.e. in providing space/coaching etc, it ain't gonna happen.

    I don't. And I completely agree. Try re-reading what I wrote with your tongue placed firmly in cheek, a large glass of irony in one hand and a sandwich of general disgust and disbelief in the other.

    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. ...
