Foiled again.

Haven't fenced since college (and preferred Sabre at that time) so I probably could not fit into that little white suit.

Have you cross posted this to any of the other fitness boards? Don't laugh, some of the martial arts ones might work better. It is worth a try. I find if I don't cross post my boards to similar interest groups I don't get a lot of traffic from "New and Notable"

Oh - a story you will appreciate. One of my favorite memories of fencing was the day my instructor was doing a demonstration. He executed a deep lunge, there was that distinct ripping sound that only cloth or a bag of potato chips can make, and then he backed his way out of the room to return with his parka tied around his hips :)
