More fencing ...

More fencing last night, but I was fencing reasonably well this time. I fenced Seamus Robinson (who came 12th at the recent World Championships) - I started ok - got the first hit (Seamus seems to really like getting the first hit normally, so I was pleased with that), and had a really nice attack (I'm not very analytical of my fencing, but it was something like beat-feint to wrist/feint to other side of wrist / lunge through to middle of bib) to take the score to 3-1. I managed to get to 5-3 ahead, then ... I had a thought. And another ... and another. This is always a bad thing in the middle of a bout when I should be concentrating on the fencing, and so it proved - Seamus got 4 straight hits to be 7-5 ahead, and finished the bout off 15-7. Oh well, next time for sure ...
