'Fencing is a game of living chess, a match where reflexes only work in combination with intent, and mind and body must work together at every moment. –V. E. Schwab
I always thought that there was something very sexy about fencing. It's a very elegant sport and then all dressed up in white with that mysterious mask. As soon as I had heard that my local fitness studio had fencing classes, I signed up. And you know what? It was sooooo difficult. To take note of everything and remember the right posture and position, the different swords foil, sabre and épée and then all those rules! It was highly complex, but the trainers were lovely and I was fascinated. I admit, I gave the next class a miss, but it really was an unforgettable experience and one that I still hope to take up one day. Up until then, and if you are also a fencing fan, we have this incredible antique fencing set. Complete with sword and mask. So you can get a bit of practice in before you join those classes.
Style: 19th century
Ps. Did you know that the mechanics of modern fencing originated in the 18th century in an Italian school of fencing of the Renaissance, and, under their influence, was improved by the French school of fencing. The Spanish school of fencing stagnated and was replaced by the Italian and French schools. (Source: Wikipedia)
