I'm from Australia and I was wondering if there where any fencers reading these forums. If your a fencer I was wondering what you consider the best weapon and why?
No need for a referee. Everything is a target. The weapon most simulates real combat. Cheaper. More pure. More elegant.
does anyone else like to fence? as in foils, sabres and epees...namely foils?
I always wanted to learn how to fence as a kid, but the closest I ever came to the sport was playing Raphael in Soul Calibur II.
My aunt used to be quite good at it and used to let us use her foils , jackets, masks etc when we were children. It was heaps of fun, but I have never done it seriously.
i been fencing once... it wasn't too bad... i was bout 12 i think... but now it would be boring for me
I tried it , i was useing Épée and sarbe ... for me the more interesting weapon was Sabre, but cutting gives sometimes more pain... i liked it
I did some fencing in Highschool and some in college, but have not had the chance to get back into it for some time. I find it both relaxing and invigorating at the same time. Easy way to get back into shape as long as you take it slow and easy. I have a tendency to over do it in everthing I do, so I end up in the hot tub and smelling of bengay for days LOL
I live in Las Vegas now, and have been looking for someplace to take lessons again.
I don't, though I'd love to learn how. There's no where around here to learn I don't think though. I believe the closest I can get is Kendo. there's a dojo in the next town that teaches it. I'm probably gonna do that sometimes fairly soon.
I've taken part in short fencing courses in the summer, but never had the chance to cultivate my skills. It's a great hobby and I hope to continue at some point.
The three, recent threads about fencing have been merged into this single one, and an older thread has been locked. Please continue all discussion of fencing in this thread.
There was an international fencing competition in Konin (Poland) yesterday. There was a lot of fencers from USA Russia Poland etc.
