Haven’t been any local tournaments at my level since early March. At the club a couple times a week, practice on my own three or four other evenings. Something different today, an inter-club scrimmage set up by my coach. Experience should be somewhere in between that of a practice and a tournament, something like a pre-season game in one of the traditional¬†team sports.

My primary goal is to have fun — no point in getting hung up on results that don’t matter. Work on the same things I’ve been developing — keep the feet moving, watch distance, be patient, attack only when I see an opportunity, work on those parries. Get to know the people I’m competing with, enjoy their company. And above all else, appreciate the sheer physicality of this sport.
