a coaches frustrated rant!

How do you win at epee? Hit your opponent first!
Surprising how some folks forget that.

Don’t pull your arm during an attack, especially if your opponent is 6 inches taller then you! (you know who I’m talking too!)

Doing an action that fails over and over again, will generally have bad results and annoy your coach

Read the rule book! Please, I’m asking nicely

Practice observation
in all things

Distance, distance, distance, distance ………..

Be nice to your coach, a fencing coach is a sorry lot ;)

FYI, Contrary to popular belief, epee jackets can be washed!

have a nice day,
coach Geoff
