Fencing

Fencing is an activity like no other. It is a very physical sport with split-second challenges for the mind. A fencer must not only cross blades, but match wits with their opponent. Fencing is often referred to as "physical chess" and, like a chess player, a fencer must learn to swiftly make moves and countermoves, using their mind and body in place of a chess piece. Many games let you pretend to cross blades with an adversary. Fencing lets you do the deed. Local competitions range from events for those age 8 and under to those for fencers age 70+. There is even wheelchair fencing! Truly, this is an activity you can continue your entire life. Besides, it’s sword fighting! How cool is that?
