Well thoth, i've finally taken up fencing at my first year in college. Now I actually UNDERSTAND the jargon we've been spewin about for so damn long! *lunge* IT BEGINS ANEW!

but seriously. it's interesting, i'm aparrently very good at it even though i've never had an official class or bout until now, and, even though I only did two quasi-real bouts today anyway, I aparrently improved drastically. Kinda weird how I seem to have a natural affinity towards swords and the ilk.

Well, make sure you continue doing stripwork. ALWAYS do stripwork.

Your ability will suffer if you don't.

Well i'm not sure what that is yet, i've only been to one meeting! but we have one three hour, will possibly have more three hour practices per week, so i'm sure i'll get more than my share of practice in....or i damn wel better for the amount of time i'm investing!

Stripwork is where you go up and down a strip, practicing your parries on eachother.

we do it like this

2, 2-2, 2-4, 2-6, 2-7
4, 4-2, 4-6, 4-6, 4-7, 4-8
6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-6, 6-7, 6-8
7, 7-2, 7-4, 7-6, 7-7, 7-8
8, 8-4, 8-6, 8-7, 8-8

and basically, you take turns. Go up defending, go down attacking.

The more advanced student (or the teacher) should be the first one to defend.

and yea.

STRIPWORK TO THE MAX!

Ah yes, we started that the very next saturday after that post, and ah the fun of having ones arm desire to fall off entirely. Sadly, i havnt been in about a month due to a lot of work piling up and a lot of friends leaving to go elsewhere. But next semester i shall indubidably return at the first chance i get!
