What is fencing?
Fencing is a sport of lunging.
It requires the use of a wide range of motion to respond and deflect opposing attacks. The core, arms, and legs all develop a good deal of flexibility in regular fencers.
Is fencing good for me?
The most direct health benefit of fencing is the exercise component of the sport. Each fencing session is a full-body workout and challenges muscles ranging from those in the feet and lower legs all the way up to the neck, shoulders and arms. Fencing places a number of physical fitness demands on its participants. The sport develops fitness, agility, speed, strength, coordination, balance and timing. Physical ability is just as important is having a strong mental edge. It involves the analysis of strategy, tactics and psychological control, as well as mental awareness, coordination, strength, balance, dexterity and aerobic fitness.
Can fencing help me to lose weight?
Fencing is a great exercise. While it's certainly a lot of fun, it is also a great way to burn calories and build up your endurance. On average, a 150-pound woman burns about 400 calories per hour while participating in a fencing workout or match. The exercises keep your body moving and your heart pumping to improve your level of fitness, burn calories and lose weight.
Is fencing dangerous?
As dangerous as it sounds fencing ranked a mere 2.5% injury rate — only slightly higher than diving and synchronised swimming. It just goes to show that with proper gear and good common sense, fencing is no more dangerous than table tennis!
