Youth Fencers Compete!
Personally, I was pulling for my fencer, Caroline, but I think we were robbed by our pool referee…oh wait, that was me. We were robbed, Caroline!
Not only did I see some great fencing by everyone, but I saw our fencers using skills they have learned in class. Everyone did a great job fencing, discovering new target areas and doing parry ripostes.
I also want to congratulate our teen and adult coaches! I was very happy to see some great leadership and coaching skills coming from our teen and adult coaches and I think the kids really enjoyed working with them.
A special congratulations to Brendan who took first place in the tournament. DESPITE arriving late! 🙂 Good patience, good use of footwork and distance and way to keep the point forward and on target — GREAT LUNGES TOO!
Congrats to everyone else that competed (Timmy, Jack, Caroline, Malaya, Jeb, Sophia, Michael, Adam and Daniel). I haven’t said it before, I really enjoy working with you. See you next Wednesday!
