RDF fencer Kaden traveled to Iowa City for his first tournament today! It was a foil tournament, which meant the rules (and strategies) were a little different than in epee, the style we fence at RDF, but that’s okay – Kaden’s goal was just to get some experience and see how a tournament works. Since only the torso is target in foil, Kaden couldn’t always rely on his favorite epee actions – like counterattacks to the arm – and had to find other ways to hit. He ended 6th of 6 in Y12 Foil, but it was a good learning experience and he’ll be that much more prepared for his first epee tournament! Thanks to our friends at the Iowa City Fencing Center for hosting the event!
