Gia Foil Lesson at Alamo Fencing Academy on April 4, 2009

Wonderful instructor! This will only interest fellow fencers but I loved it so much I had to post.

I've always been fascinated with fencing, Yoli. There's a cool fencing scene in the film "Sunshine", with Ralph Fiennes. Have you seen it?

Well, I enjoyed it, and I am not a fencer. Although I could have been one. Do you know that aged nine my mother took me to a sports centre near our house called 'Penton' and tried to register me as a fencing student? Only that it was for people born in 1970 and I was born a year later. Tough luck. I did wrestling instead.

Greetings from London.

My brother was a fencer and I used to watch the fencers practicing in cool cloisters which echoed. It was too fast thinking for me. I became a rower.

Visiting your place via Willow, and loving the video. I used to play fencing, not very well I might say, but I loved the art. I wrote about how I feel about fencing on my blog if you care to check

You have a wonderful place. Love your choice of quotes!
