Keeping the Distance

A little bonus post today. Pictures from this morning's class. Brand new students, working on learning to keep the distance. This is their first time working with a partner.

They are holding 1/2" diameter dowels that are four feet long. The dowels serve to give them a reference for the distance they are trying to keep, and also give them immediate tactile feedback, rather than having only visual feedback to know if they are successful.


  1. Its a handy drill. Thanks for posting.

  2. Nice photos, Linda and thanks for sharing. Who gets the luxury of lovely fencing classes in the morning if I may ask?

  3. Morning classes are some of our PE classes at Cornell University.
    And the pictures are from my new phone- which takes better pictures than my camera! Technology keeps outpacing me.
