Richard Kruse Training Day
A fantastic experience was had by all today as we were put through our paces by Britain's top foilist Richard Kruse - currently ranked World No.4. The training session covered answers to questions such as 'how do I deal with flick hits?', and 'what do you do about an opponent who hides their attack with absence of blade?' During paired exercises, several solutions were offered to each problem given from the floor. This was followed by a free fencing session in which all participants were offered the chance of a 10 minute one-to-one lesson with Richard. People left the 5 hour session exhausted, but elated. What a day!
