    I guess it depends whether you think there is a link between training and competing.

    This is not a good decision. You will have u20 international fencers joining your universities in September. You are asking them to train and compete to two different sets of rules. Many of our 2nd...

    The rule may prove to be a bad rule and not adopted, but it is such a bad idea not to adopt this rule. Potentially UK sabre 6 months behind everyone else by January 2017. Especially for cadets,...

    Indeed. On the command "fence" he can beat the opponents blade without taking a step.

    I see BF have made a decision. I predict confusion. Why is the rule only being applied to cadets?

    Having had another week of it I've seen a few more problems. Safety is a big one. I think it's too close and I'd be...

    I don't think it's possible to over-state just how much Katie has contributed to the whole sport. The national championships, BYC's etc have simply been transformed/professionalised into some of the...

    In that case, as we have two u20 qualifiers that are also domestic opens, I think the sensible thing to do is to introduce the rule after Rio.

    We did a full day testing of the new en guard rule on Sunday at the Scottish Fencing Academy. We like it; we don't see any change in tactical approach to the game, it did reduce simultaneous...

    I'm confused. We've had information confirming that British cadet qualifiers and potentially u20 qualifiers (which include Hamlet and Leon Paul Opens) will include the new rule.

    Yes, the problem is of course, that if we don't know how ref's are going to interpret things, we coaches don't know how to coach them.

    I'm also assuming senior open's will have to use the new...

    From what I can gather, the new timings and en guard starting position won't be used for this season's national u20 and u17 championships, but will be in place for all events after Rio, including...

    You would have thought so. But the letter posted on the BF website talks about it being in place for 2016-17 season and we are starting ours (for whatever reason) in July.

    Do we know if the new Sabre timings will be in play at the British u17 and u20 championships in July?

    No, this is the case. Anyone who became 13 in 2016 was ineligible to fence in the 2015/16 British Championships. They are now ineligible to fencing in the 2016/17 championships.

    The size of the weapon may well be a problem for some, but we are talking here about an entire year group being excluded from fencing in U20's this year.
