this insightful article on Karolyn and fencing:
On Karolyn/Fencing (LINK)
on Fencing The sport of fencing will use your body
and mind in a competitive nature while developing discipline, coordination,
and the ability to think on your feet. Fencing is compared to the
game of chess and is often referred to as “physical chess.”
It teaches you to use your body as well as your mind to analyze
your opponent’s moves and respond in a coordinated way to
be the best you can be while trying to out maneuver your opponent.
Fencing is a sport that will work every part of your body. You will
use all of your muscles and get a great cardiovascular workout.
It is a fun and exciting way to keep you fit and toned. Your mind
is also being challenged every step of the way as you are constantly
trying to thwart your opponent’s moves. Fencing will also
teach a person how to be competitive: the art of winning and losing.
The individual dedication that is required in the sport of fencing
develops one’s character and provides crucial life lessons
applicable on and off the strip.
