En Garde

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting En Garde Fencing in Santa Rosa California. Moniteur Jim Liebich has built a fantastic fencing school. Jim offers Classes, Private Lessons and Camps as well as hosting tournaments.

If you are into or even thinking about getting into Fencing I highly recommend giving Jim a call.

Timing is a big part of getting great sports shots, however setting up the shot will help increase your chances. I spent a great deal of time shooting from dozens of different angles but I found out that a diagonal just over the shoulder of one of the fencers gives the shot the most action and movement.
