Fencing

I’ve always wanted to learn to fence ever since I was a child watching the Olympics. It must’ve been 1976. Erroll Flynn, the Three Musketeers, and a bunch of other swordfighting movies watched on Saturdays surely contributed to this desire, too!

NEW 01/11/10 I scored my first point in my first bout at fencing practice. It was really exciting, and I still don’t know what the heck I’m doing!

12/11/2009 I got my fencing gear delivered today!!! Yes! I’m doing it!

Excellent article about “Chess with Knives”

United States Fencing Association

Rules
