The Eighth Week

The Eighth Week

Had a sparring session with Luce, wasn’t bad, apart from her bending my foil with her ribs of steel!
Back to basics. Repetition of basic parry, circular parry, lunge and tweaking of stance.

I have been getting really bad pain in my middle knuckle and ring finger knuckle, it wasn’t Val hitting me for making mistakes, but bad grip, I was holding the foil with way too much tension, We had a chat about the basic grip, and how to move the foil by loosening your fingers rather than moving my wrist, basically, learning economy of movement, to make my blocks and attacks more efficient and also reduce the amount I am telegraphing.

Had a spar with Oliver’s son, who is left handed, this was good.
