Multiple partners

I changed the schedule for this summer. One of the clubs not too far from my office started doing “epee nights” once a week, and I’ve been going there for the last two months. Unfortunately, as a result, I get to spend less time working with my coach, but since this arrangement is only for the summer, we’ll catch up once it’s over.

And the “nights” are proving extremely beneficial. We get 10-15 people each time, several As and Bs, at few first ones we had a guy from Hungarian Olympic pentathlon team. And every “night” is similar to our club tournaments – everyone fences everyone else, no direct elimination.

I never had this amount of bouts with opponents of this level before. This is an extremely important experience that you just cannot get any other way. The result is usually quite predictable, but I’m not handing out easy wins, and on rare occasions I get victories too.

Looks like these “nights” are becoming a permanent thing, not just for the summer. I really don’t want to lose practice with my coach, but will try to make it to the “nights” once a month or so.
