Here is the Drill of the Week for 4-27-09.
This week’s drill is tactical in nature. You will fence for a specified time period, however no touches are to be scored. If you do accidentally make a hit you will ignore it and continue fencing.
Foil and Epee will fence for 3 minutes. Saber will fence for 1 minute. When you are done with the drill you should talk about the tactics and technique choices used to come up with better applications or better moments to use them. This is also a great way to assess mistakes in timing and distance.
Remember you are practicing normal scenarios and being forced to continue an action beyond what you would normally do. This will require endurance and focus. Make sure you work hard in this drill and you will be greatly rewarded for it.
