About the principles of fencing: Weapons

First of all, I want to note that when I say “weapons”, I mean everything that a person holds in his hands, leading a battle. The shield is also a weapon. When you need to clarify, I will write this way – weapons for attack, weapons for defense. It may be unusual, but it’s really easier.

This made fencing a more entertaining and objective discipline.

Fencing is divided into three Olympic disciplines: sword, rapier and saber. Their main differences are which injections are counted in which parts of the body and which are not. Regardless of the type of weapon chosen, all fencers are characterized by a good reaction, coordination, flexibility, flexibility and speed of decision-making. Such qualities should be at least partially possessed by a child if he wants to succeed in this sport. Continue reading
