    How have we managed to destroy what used to be such a massive event?

    We have made it elitist but in totally the wrong way. It is reduced in number because of the financial cost.

    It should have...

    Confidence and calmness are the key. Also refereeing to the level of the event. At a kids event I am likely to phrase everything to help the fencers and parents understand what is happening. At a...

    I think the U23s was brought in to reflect the practice of an number of other sports which have the same transfer problem between juniors and seniors. That is at FIE level not BF level.

    I'm thinking of applying for one of these posts, but I would only do so if it didn't need to be based in London. I really don't see why it would need to be! I intend to get it clarified. If you are...

    James thrives on movement, playing with distance and using his reach. Garozzo didn't give him the movement and kept it quite stationary, then looked to pick James off in his indecision. Impressive!

    Premiership Playoffs

    The hit surface area of a sabre is far smaller than that of a foil or epee, hence the penetration injuries from unbroken blades to the hand.
