Post subject:  Fencing

Hello! I love fencing! I have fenced for a few years now. This thread is for all you fencers out there! Talk about your team or whatever!

My team's name is The Steel Escadrille, because of our town's steel making history. Although I'm not that good in the line of French so I don't know what Escadrille means.

Careful not to double post.

I love fencing. I've always wanted to learn, but never really had the opportunity. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to taking some lessons at the Y or something.

My school actually has a fencing unit. (Weird, I know). We have the masks body coverers, and we use foils. I am pretty good at it although the last time I was near a foil, I was refereeing a match. Person A stabbed person B, person B parried right into my left eye. :oops: Ouch. Yea, I think I'm still gonna play in gym but never referee again.

yeah ref's sometimes get badly injured. Sometimes even the coach. I remember our coach got his arm broken. I forget how but he did. :lol:
And even I got hurt. I was fighting the new guy to build his confidence and he stabbed me in the wrong place... :shock:
I hate that the jacket only covers the torso and arms...

I did fencing for a few months in our games lessons at school. IMO, it was one of the best things we ever were forced to do!

I'm not really good at it, but I like it anyway. We tried out foils and sabres, and we also tried using the electronic scoring system with the foils (which didn't work half the time because some eejits had left broken wires in with the equipment >_<).

I sorta understand the rules... can't say I really follow much international fencing. :P

Also, I voted for sabres, because they look like a weapon that an actual 18th century dude would have fought with.
