You have your bag of tricks, your go-to game, but it doesn't always work. How do you develop a game that's more than just those tricks? How do you go from hoping a particular attack works, to adapting your attacks to whatever the situation? It boils down to the fundamentals of combat: Measure, Line, and Tempo. We'll discuss their basic elements, how they apply to your fight, and how you can begin to transition from that bag of tricks to a true plan of attack that survives first contact with the enemy.
Note: Bring your fencing gear AND your favorite trick to use in a tourney.
