Why do we choose to fence?
Fencing is a unique type of sport. I invite you to join the fencing community, that is spread all around the world, and discover where is hidden the uniqueness of this respectable sport:
It is single combat which does not harm the body and the head as bad as the other sports from the same category. You can get few bruises for a single training or a competition (serious traumas and body damages happen extremely rare), but that is all.
There are no age barriers-you can fence your entire life from 8-60 or even older. Fencing is also equally suitable for both men and women who challenge themselves and test their physical and tactical abilities.
Do you want to lose weight? Great! You won’t have force yourself. You just put on the fencing kit and the mask, enter in the match and while you are busy with the tactical fight, you don’t notice how you move back and forth as you are motivated to win. You don’t feel tired as your brain is busy with something else and parallel to this, you lose calories. It has been calculated that for one competition an active fencer can lose up to 1000 calories.
You want a beautiful and slim body. In fencing, you use the muscular mass that you rarely use throughout a normal day.
In addition to all the physical development you go trough you also change the way you think strategically and tactically.
