We welcomed a new fencer, Jon, so while I went through a quick introduction to Meyer rapier, David and Nicola worked on some more sophisticated maneouvers.

Later, Nicola and I took turns playing "fencing chess" with David.  The idea is to fence slowly, so it comes down to a game of: I do this, you do that, so I want to go here etc.  I found it a nice way to analyse my fencing - identifying mistakes I repeatedly make - and I think it will be a useful way to intoduce new plays that I've had trouble making work at speed.
