The open epee event was fun. There where many well fought bouts. I didn’t finish real well but I felt like I fenced some good bouts. I was too timid in a couple bouts which cost me some touches. I got some good epee touches and I got some good foil touches during the tournament.

I got there right before the saber started – they were finishing up the epee competition. I tried to get some pictures from the epee fencers, but found they moved very quickly and action shows were few and far between. When the saber started, though, it got intense pretty quickly. Within a few hours they were down to the finalists, and each spar was really close – first to 15 rounds with it being 14 to 15. What was especially exciting was the Canadian kid versus the American one for the title – and the one before it with the Russian versus the Canadian, who had very close rounds.

I noticed a lot of people didn’t keep perfect form – a lot of the epee fencers ran into one another, and once a saber blade broke. But I got a lot of good pictures out of it, and it was a lot of fun. Shame more people didn’t come. 😛

“epee fencers ran into one another”

yes, more body contact is allowed in epee than the other weapons.
