Fencing, anyone?

The sport of fencing is a uniquely classic sport. It has a history, drama, romance, style, art, plus all of the advantages of an active physically demanding sport. Mentally it is mind consuming, allowing not a moment’s break. A far cry from the choreographed bouts portrayed on film, the sport of fencing is dynamic, fast and athletic.

There are many benefits to participating in fencing whether as a youth or as an adult. At any age, fencing teaches good sportsmanship and self-discipline. Fencers learn to compete independently as well as for a team; they learn to enjoy winning and to learn from defeats, while becoming physically fit and healthy; and, most importantly, they learn to make complex decisions, analyze problems, and think fast. These ideals help fencers reach their potential in many areas other than fencing.

Fencing tidbit

Jean-Joseph Renaud, a member of the fourth place French sabre team in 1908, was the organizer and director of over one hundred illegal private duels. He justified his role in these clandestine encounters by explaining that "generally both parties are so nervous that nobody gets hurt, the offended hero soothes his honor, and everyone goes away happy."
