Mental training is important for us because we want to do better at it so that it doesn’t become the next great thing or the great thing we do.”
We want to focus on one thing that’s been proven over time in the field of physical exercise: mental fitness.
“You work harder. You work stronger. You can go out into the gym to do this workout. I look at the studies that have been done on this, and it’s basically that because you start doing things that get you stronger. It does sound silly, but it’s true for any exercise that involves more muscles — that’s what’s been proven. They show that when people who have strong muscles and strong joints take more time, they improve.
“One thing that’s been proven over time is for endurance athletes. The endurance athletes do a lot of running, even sprints. The physical fitness is a big part of how much physical health and recovery they get. One thing they are starting to show this year, I guess — that they actually get better at these lifts — and they are working hard. You can get a lot better at your physical and mental effort every single day, and I’m not saying that I’m all about this, but I’m saying that you have to be in your physical recovery, if you’re doing it like this for six months a week, six months a week, 12 months a week, it’s hard.”

We still have a few open slots at our Pre-Nationals camp next week.
This fencing day camp will be coached by Aaron Kandlik and Eric Soyka. Anyone participating at Summer Nationals is welcome. Students should be prepared for multiple private lessons, tactical situations, as well as a lot of bouting.
The Camp will run from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Please pre-register if you plan on attending.
We have two great workshops coming up the beginning of January. We have finally been able to get Coach Aaron Kandlik to come out in the winter and share his knowledge with us again. Coach Kandlik is is a Level 4 Coach in all 3 weapons from the USFA Coaches College, a certified Prevost d’Armes and a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Aaron has coached for Vassar College, Northwest Fencing Center and currently is coaching for Oregon Fencing Alliance which is home to Olympic Fencers Mariel Zagunis and Becca Ward.
Now about the workshops… The first will be on January 1st, a Youth workshop, where Coach Kandlik will help fill in the gaps in your fencing. This night will not be all fencing as we also plan to play a lot of fun games too. We like to think of it as a Parents Date night, something every parent needs after the holidays. (There will also be pizza for the kids)
There will also be a Teen Workshop on Saturday January 2nd. This will be a full day of fencing instruction. Coach Kandlik will use the most modern techniques and gear this workshop toward the specific needs of the students who attend.
