Fencing

Postby CrazyGirlyCaptain » Wed Jul 30, 2008 6:13 pm

Does anyone out there do fencing? I just did a little of it at this summer program I was at and even though I was terrible, I loved it!
lol, I have bruises all over my stomach from the foils.

Awe man, I'm so jealous, I've always wanted to do fencing but never got the chance!

I'll probably never do it again because of how expensive it is. But it was fun learning all the moves and watching movies that had sword fighting in it and comparing it to real fencing and seeing how it compares. We watched the Pirates movies and Princess Bride and a few other movies with fencing and it was really cool to be able to recognize the different moves.

ahh, that explains why it seems to be only done by upper east side people with posh accents. besides the fact that i dont have any money :( , i dont think its something that i would do because i dont think having someone attacking me with a sword would be particularly fun....

I'm taking it right now!!! It's so fun!!!

Yeah.... I agree about the expensive thing. I don't know if this is going to be a lasting sport for me, but I want some fencing foils for christmas so that I can whack around in the basement even if I'm not taking formal classes.


But yeah, I love the fact that you have to have a grasp for tactics and strategy if you're going to be good at it.... It's SO fun. Probably the most fun I've ever had with a sport.

I just recently started taking fencing, and it's SOOOOOOOOO fun!!

It's intense, actiony, and you have to be tactical and smart to be good at it. It's the most fun I've ever had in a sport.

I was wondering how many other people take fencing/have taken it before?


EDIT: WOAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH I feel like a retard! The first topic was fencing!!!! Sorry! Can a mod please delete this embarassment?!

No worries; I merged the threads for you, then merged the double post left over. :)

Whew. Thanks, Tyrison!!

Well, to add to the topic, I'm not taking fencing right now, but I'm waiting for the classes to start up again. And it's getting annoying.
