Party like it’s 2009, part 2: Korea v Hungary

I wrote a post a couple of weeks bemoaning the demise of the draw cut. Review of Korea v Hungary showed that either earlier reports were exaggerated, or the combination of the two most draw cut-happy teams on the circuit brought them back out of hiding again.

Either way, I was a bit unkind to Csanad Gemesi yesterday. He’s a very good fencer, and he scored some lovely hits. Yesterday’s edition was about the Koreans using massive, aggressive attacks to rattle Gemesi and make him tense. The downside with big attacks is they’re pretty open to this sort of thing:

Szilagyi also likes these, and pulled off a beauty against a marching attack by Gu:

It wasn’t a one-sided tactic: Won threw one in towards the end stages, with his characteristic bounce.

Once again, the full match is here:

This work is made possible by the research work done by the staff and students at the Sydney Sabre Centre, so if you like this I would really appreciate you leaving a review on Facebook and Google – 5 stars would be great but even better if you tell us why!
 
We read every single review and are always looking to improve how we do things because ultimately Sydney Sabre is all about  sharing this great sport and making it accessible to everyone. I know that this sport is a big part of who I am today, and wish this place was around when I was growing up.
 
If that isn’t enough motivation for you, here’s another reason: we will give you a stackable 5% discount off on anything we sell (services and stuff) for each review that you leave for us, for one transaction. You can spend it on yourself or use it to subsidise a friend (or a whole bunch of friends, if you want to bring along a horde).
 
Thanks in advance.
