    I'd probably pick one in Italy. If you're going to pay for the education you might as well learn a language as well and get top notch fencing.

    Yes I know that Italian fencing is club based, but...

    I've seen the test version of the new LP wireless system, which I think is supposed to be available in the Autumn?

    Great organising both days I was there. Well done to Jon, Katie and the team.

    One thing which is concerning me for the Juniors in the rolling ranking is the disproportionate effect for the Junior Nationals on the Ranking.

    Meths and cotton buds. The meths is good to drink when you've lost the bloody grub screws!

    Thank you to the inhabitants of that strange world called "epee" for welcoming me on Sunday. Seeded 4th after the poules was rather unexpected, at which point I think I got altitude sickness at being...

    Have you tried simply taking the tip out and cleaning it out with meths and a cotton bud?

    If it is an LP tip then replace the grub screws. In the LP tip they are an integral part of the contact...

    We can look at the technicalities all we like but the simple fact is that once the arm is straight the referee has to perceive a definite break before the opponent start to extend. It tends to appear...

    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...

    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!

    A slip with a sabre point to an unprotected leg could...
