Foil Lesson July 17, 2009

This lesson was given to a younger foil student who I am preparing for competition this fall. He’s been away for a year, and I am trying to get him reaquanted, and to review some basic concepts. We are going to be moving very quickly into choice and mobility actions.

Foil Lesson July 3, 2009

This foil lesson was given July 3, 2009 to a young foil student, returning after almost a year off. The material was primarily review, and was designed to help him re-acclimate to the lesson format. Previously this student had been able to perform most of these actions with mobility. The compound action at the end was designed to challenge the student and served as a diagnostic tool to see how much he could still remember.
