ABOUT FENCING: Not only is fencing a beautiful and elegant sport by the nature of it’s movements, it is also a very broad discipline as it teaches your MIND & BODY to work together. One learns to think and move fast. It also challenges your reaction time against your opponent so you learn to make decisions very quickly – otherwise, you get hit! And THAT is an invaluable life skill. The techniques can be taught and learned slowly and methodically, allowing a fencer to develop a good memory and gain patience and perseverance along the way.
SOME BENEFITS OF FENCING: FOCUS • CONFIDENCE • CONCENTRATION • ATHLETICISM • BALANCE • COORDINATION • DEXTERITY • MENTAL STRENGTH • SPORTSMANSHIP
