The Point hosted a marvelous tournament full of advice and camaraderie. This was only my second tournament fencing sabre with Bradley. Naturally, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but from past experience I was anticipating a large gym and a crowd of people. I was gladly mistaken. The Point offers the fencer a unique experience. The tournament is very well organized and is unique in that it offers a sort of “relaxed” feel to it’s participants. It is smaller in scale and fewer people to compete against. I enjoyed this aspect because it allowed for more discussion and feedback amongst the fencers and coaches. I received useful feedback from both my coaches and those of the Point. I did not win a bout-but I still got quite a few points! I was able to land an effective wrist touch/flick that impressed my opponent, and I made note of multiple other attacks I made that were effective. As before at the Burton, I gained valuable experience that I will add to my knowledge and apply to future tournaments. The Point might be my favorite tournament thus far!
