Bonjour from Paris

Bonjour from Paris

Last weekend were in Paris for our yearly trip the Paris Challenge International de Paris.

For us the action started on Friday morning when Sean was on site for initial the phases of the tournament. He also managed to sit down with Enzo Lefort, Alex Massialas and Ben Paul from Leon Paul. After surviving Parisian traffic, Gav trundled into town with his photo gear that evening.

As usual the CIP was a great tournament with lots of drama throughout the day.  We managed to sit down after the major sessions throughout Saturday to give our impressions.

The event is available to stream on youtube via FFEscrime, here's the link to their playlist:

We'd like to give a massive shout out to our pals at FFEscrime for making our visit really enjoyable.

And also to our sponsors Leon Paul for helping sort out everything for us.

Episode 22: We're back, Hooray!

It feels like an age since we last recorded but here we are, it's a new fencing season and a new episode to go with it. We apologise for the delay, there's been some unavoidable production delays.

Sean and Gav have a lot to go over: Women's Epee action in Tallin, Women's Foil action, Berne Mens Epee and Women's Sabre from Orleans (featuring chocolate). Gav makes an admission...

+++News News News+++
We hear some news in births section of the sport (congrats all!) and Sean and Gav discuss celebrity fencing gear.
And here's a question: How DO we fix epee??

Note:  this is the link to the final. To watch the L8 and up you will need to go this channel and watch each fight individually. In some ways this is a great way to present Sabre, in other ways it makes it difficult for us!!
