Plus American Fencers are getting alot better.


*ahem* oh sorry, did I laugh? didn't mean to. Yes, american fencers are getting better... but the problem is, it's not a national sport... whereas in france and italy, fencing is considered one of the 3 national sports.. There is also a difference in attitude (don't take this badly.. I know you all will) because Fencing, as you said, is an elitist sport in the US... But not in France! I have property in a small village of about 200 inhabitants that has a small gymnasium... and fencing is one of the very few sports that's taught in it on a weekly basis , so I can only deduce that people who fence in the US have a superior attitude... and the French guys don't... if you observed the olympics last year (in fencing), there was a frenchman got a broken sword right through his hand, and the american athlete was actually laughing at him, didn't apologise or anything, whereas (I have seen that same guy compete against a friend of mine) the frenchman will apologise if he hurts the other...... oh and btw, after a short break and a bandaged hand, the frenchman won against the american... don't underestimate the injured man!
