PHYSICAL FITNESS FRIDAYS- FENCING

Hey folks,

Happy Friday!  Today's activity of choice is another intriguing one to me.  When I was contemplating today's topic, this very activity came in my mind for some reason.  So, let's find out some of the health benefits of fencing!

FENCING

Fencing is a one-on-one competition with a sword. The three official fencing weapons are the foil, epee and sabre. The foil is a light thrusting sword, the epee is a heavy thrusting sword and the sabre is a light cutting and thrusting weapon.

Fencing is an aerobic exercise because it requires participants to move quickly and constantly throughout training and matches.  Fencing requires participants to aim carefully at a moving target.  Alot like dancing or martial arts, fencing moves requires precision and strength. Fencing increases athletes strength, flexibility and coordination.
