When I tell people I fence , half the time they think I build fences (yeah cause a 16 year old girl builds fences omg) and then some of them are all "Oh that is cool you get to stab and slash people with swords all day"

 

OMG NO.

 

So to show what it really takes to be a fencer (and the amount of work we have to do for it) I present a short video. Maybe this will get some of you more interested in our sport, which is always a good thing. We sort of get lost in the shuffle sport wise.

Many, many, years ago I took a semester of fencing in college. I remember that my thighs were crapped out at the end of each class. It is a tough workout. I'm much better at throwing up a 6 strand barbed wire fence. My hat's off to you for taking it to the competitive level. Good luck!

Certainly interesting as a matter of general knowlege, and 'try to learn something new every day,' thanks OP.

I have been fencing since I was 6. At that age the training is VERY basic and more of a "fun" hobby than anything serious. As a child gets older if he/she sticks with it the training gets more "serious" and more diverse in style. There is a whole aspect of fencing that is basically "theory" in addition to the physical aspect of it. It is hard to explain. I did my first Y10 tournament at 8 and while I got schooled big time, I loved it and have been hooked ever since.

 

In case anyone is interested for themselves or their kids:

This is the Western Star I use to deliver components to Cape Canaveral so SpaceX and NASA can keep good folks like @Chobittsu helping our space industry set the pace for innovation!
