Fencing

Fun Stuff on Tuesday Nights

.

The Jabberwock has decided to take up fencing again after a 25 year hiatus….

.

The mask (although severely beat up) is still useable and the glove in pretty good condition.  I don’t seem to have any practice (non-electric) blades, so will need to use whatever the club has — hopefully NOT a French grip!  Alas, the jacket is too small since I have put on 25 pounds in the last 25 years, so will have to use a stinky one at the club.

.

I fenced “hard core” for a year in high school, and two years in college, and quite honestly those were the best memories of my youth.  Good times, very good people, and good exercise.  And of course I loved competing in tournaments, and have a desire to get back into that if my bum knee cooperates.

.

Wish me luck….I am in really bad shape right now !

    Awesome that you’re getting back into it. Be careful with that knee though and don’t do too much too fast.
