Back To The Basics

Last night was week two of my second fencing class. Things just make sense this time around. It's a pretty large class again, about 15. AND!! There's six other women!!! WOOT! Plus more adults so I won't feel so bad talking an adult down as I did an 11 year old.

Worked on foot work again and learned parrys 4, 7, 6, and 8. Got to suit up again *squeal!* After class was open fencing so I went up against Alex; why do I do this to myself?? Fought him for about 10 minutes. He peeled away and went up against Patrick, so Clint stepped in. This is his first time and h'es fighting like I did last session. I found his weak spots fairly easily, though he found some of mine, as well. Clint and I dueled for 15-20 minutes. We were both spent. I strongly recommended to him that he take lots of ibuprofen when he got home!!

This class and sport just ROCKS!!!

It's really making sense this time around!! Sometimes I still feel like I'm flailing everywhere, but not as bad!!
