Cold Steel's Jason Heck competed in Saber at the Orange County Coast
Division 3 Weapons Open yesterday
He won every bout during the pools (the only person to do so), and was
#1 seed going into the direct elimination round.
Jason won his first D.E. (Direct Elimination) bout 15-3 (before going on to compete against a saberist that used to fence against his late fencing coach Carlos Fuertes).
It was a hard fought match with Jason eventually prevailing 15-13.
His next match was against the highest rated fencer in the competition. After another tough bout, Jason lost 13-15, but still went on to recieve his Division II rating.
Just one more step up and Jason will be Division I and fencing at the
highest ranked competitions in the country!
