 More 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.
