Holy tiptape Batman!

church_fencingHi all,

The Navrati celebration held every year in the gym is again in session.

To avoid missing so many fencing classes, I’ve made arrangements with the pastor so that we may fence  in the church sanctuary Tues and Thurs evenings through October 27th.

We’ll move a pews around a little, and I have faith that it will work out just fine =)

Intramural Fencing at UCSC

1_fencer    winners      three_fencers

For the first time in a long time UCSC had Intramural fencing, of a sort.

It was a “come try electric fencing” tourney. Teams of three competed in a team epee tourney. 37 participants competed on 4 strips… and had a blast doing it =)

We got ’em registered and dressed. I provided a whopping 15 minute tutorial which mostly consisted of 1. How not to hurt each other accidently and 2. How not to break the fencing gear.

And… we got it done in 3 hours… including set-up and breakdown.

Prévôt de Fleuret

I’ve passed my written, oral and practical tests and am now a certified Prévôt de Fleuret with the USFCA. This certification is recognized world wide by member nations of the AAI (Academie d’ Armes Internationionale).

Prévôt is similar to the Master level professional fencing coach with more emphasis on training fencers rather than other coaches.
