Fencing Video

Saturday, November 26, 2005



Matt Dodwell epées me to pieces. I'm a bit new to the video technology here, but it seems to work better the second time you run it for some reason. Things to look out for when you do: Matt's level shoulders compared to my continually tipping ones; Matt's neat parries of my useless lunges compared to my wild flailing at his feints; Matt's expert touch on my foot to score the point compared to my accusing look at that foot after he has done so.

I can't see how there would be any confusion, but just in case there is, I'm the one on the right.

I think you kept him on his toes quite well,John. I can't quite make out what the president says at the end??
Hopefully your opponents in the boxing events will be less talented!

Top lunging and looking at your feet action!

Most impressed with the video technology too - look forward to watching the ten metre dive in particular...

I just came across this while looking for fencing videos, but wanted to comment that you look fantastic for being new to the sport. Your footwork is great, you know what you're doing wrong, and the rest of it comes with experience. Good for you for taking on this challenge!

I thought epee was slow with few attacks.
