OK, Class!
Attention! Cookie, you need the proper gear on for this class. Also, we are using the foil, not the cutlass!
Ms. Chirps, will you show Cookie the gear lockers, and read him the rules that apply to the class? Thank you.
Now, Last week we learned about the special equipment and some of the attack-retreat formulas. This week, we are going to concentrate on stance and balance! These are foundational to fencing. You can't make a proper move without a solid stance!
Chirps, will you come and help me demonstrate stances?
Good! Now, any structure requires a good solid base.
Notice how Chirps feet are angled slightly outward? Her forward foot is not very far forward, and her back foot is about 6 inches behind her shoulders. In this stance, she can easily move forward (Chirps demonstrates the attack forward) or she can move backwards(Chirps demonstates the retreat move)! This stance will keep her on gaurd to attack or retreat at a moments notice!
For now, we will practice slowly advancing and retreating. Then, as you get better, we will move faster and you will see how important stance is.
Now, On Gaurd! Forward, retreat! forward, retreat!
Very nice, Cookie you need to move the back foot a little forward. If it's too far back, you have no room to retreat! Again, forward, back, forward back!
Very good! any questions so far?
