2012-10-03 En Garde!!

Today I went to my very first Fencing lesson!! It was a special offer I found months ago for two fencing lessons and the first one was on today! What an experience!! We did lunges and the “en garde” stance and everything! I was delighted they gave us the gear and an actual “foil”!! And here's something you might not know..getting “stabbed” with a foil can be painful! ;) It's a more energetic sport than you think too!! This is actually a photo of me.. I went straight from work so that explains the non-fencing-like trousers and slip-on shoes! Can't wait for next week!

Fencing looks like a lot of fun, I would love a go at itbut I've never seen it offered on groupon or the like.

Wow so adventurous. My niece has been fencing for 3 years now and loves it. Great exercise.
