On the blog, Puck writes:

The final exam given by the Fencing Master’s Program at San Jose State University on December 13, 2008 and it ended a 30 year tradition of fencing education. I was part of that program and took my Master’s examination that day. I had flown in from Spain 6 weeks earlier and trained almost non-stop to prepare. It was the culmination of over 16 years of fencing and 4 and half years of pedagogy training under Maestro Sullins, Maestro Sahm, and Maestra Sahm.
