Sabre meets Epee on Monday Night

At the end of a club night in August, the épée squad joined the veteran sabreurs for half an hour of sabre combat.  Despite the differences between the sports, a series of hard-fought bouts were enjoyed by all.  The épée-ists held their own although they were penalised for their tendency to start half-way across the en guarde line.  “I’ve never ever heard such polite refereeing” commented Head Coach Iain Aberdeen after the sabre referee apologised for not awarding a point to the épée-ist.  It was a great way to end a tough nights training.
