Reading Lovecraft's stories now. Very Edgar Allan Poe-like.

Okay, here's something that might surprise you all, I fence. And by that I'm not referring to the wooden decor, but to the blade used to stab people.

Saber, foil or epee?

I fence epee, I've always wanted to try out saber, but I'm annoyed by any right-of-way rules and all of that. I like epee because it's a heavier blade and has a lot more freedom.

Do you do fencing?

What is epee for those that have no clue?

Um... I want to take up archery.

I do saber, although I've done foil and a tiny bit of epee. Saber is where my heart lives. Such fantastic swashbuckling action. And I referee, too. I love the grammar of right-of-way and deconstructing it.

Elara, epee is the style of fencing based around the [REMOVED]. In epee fencing the entire body is a valid target, as opposed to restricted regions, and only allows touches with the tip of the sword. It also has no rules of right-of-way, or priority, to determine who gets a point if both fencers make a touch in a brief span of time. Instead epee allows for both fencers to get the point, which drastically changes the strategy compared to the other styles.

Also, I did archery last semester. It was alright, got a bit repetitive after a while. I miss the mental play and variety that comes with sparring.

I would also like to learn some kind of sword fighting... I don't know if I want to go fencing, per se... but something.

I think I would enjoy the focus of archery from what little I have gotten to do. I just need money for the bow I want and a place to actually practice. Mostly the practicing.

I understand that.

I recommend checking out fencing, it's a great sport. I obviously recommend saber (everything above the waist is target, and you can use the edge of the blade), but foil is a great place to start (torso and crotch is target, only use the point), since everything from it can be transitioned into either saber or epee.

Elara, I'm just going to second what FX says, fencing is amazing. I'm not one for recommending foil, just because I find the right-of-way rules to be boring, and I hate how wimpy the blades are, but whichever one you choose, it's actually a lot of fun and can get kind of crazy.

FX, do you do the competitions?

One day. *sigh* Is there a particular style that is more favorable to those with some back troubles?

Xeo... what is DDP Yoga?

Vulkar, I haven't done any competitions, but I did take the test to become an official director. Sorry, referee *groans*

Elara, I'm not sure if there's one that's significantly better for a bad back, no. I personally have back issues and it doesn't cause a problem when saber fencing. Saber tends to be faster paced, so I suppose it may be slightly more high-impact? Also, epee has a narrower stance, without having to settle as low, since the legs are a target area.

FX, well, Epee you still have to get a little lower, if only because you still need to if you want a good lunge, but it might also just be because I'm really tall, so I have to if I want to keep myself at a decent level with my opponents.

Anyway though, other trivia about the great Lord Vulkas, I always want to keep my hair fairly short, I just can't stand the look of having long hair.

In my brief experience it was feet closer together, and knees tucked in.
