Floris, Zorro, gladiators in the Roman arena`s, who does not know them?
Fencing has always been part of the Olympic Games and is practiced all over the world. A challenging and exciting sport where physical speed and agility meets with resilience and tactical discipline. No Olympic dream needed.
Essentially it involves the clash of a man or a woman against a man or a woman in which both opponents go to great lengths to eliminate each other. It's a dream scenario: fighting without damaging each other. Fencing is an individual sport and you can experience how your game style and dedication can improve with practice. It offers students a creative way to be disciplined and sportive with an opponent in a combat situation. Balance, speed, coordination and respect are key.
