I just got my placing from a Fencing Tournament last Sunday, I placed 6th out of 25, in Open Foil. I'm thinking I should've signed up for Open Sabre instead, I would've licked 'em all real good. :dgrin:

:beer: You did excellently. Extreme quickness, manual dexterity and keeping your focus is the key. Sounds like fun.

fencing always struck me as an incredibly demanding discipline.I always had an interest in the study of the sword(both eastern&western)butwas usually otherwise occupied.
Are you strictly into European fencing/swordsmanship,or have you branched off into other areas?

All European, I like to stick to my roots.

-EDIT-

Sabre isn't European, it's Middle Eastern. Where the Sabre is called a scimitar, it wasn't called a Sabre until it spread to Western Europe, and it's most often used by light and medium cavalry units.
