I like fencing because.........

Last February half term, my family and I went on a holiday to bluestone. Steve was doing a fencing class which my brother Jacob went to. We found out that Steve ran Celtic mini fencing in Swansea, after nagging my mum we both went to a taster session. Jacob and I thoroughly enjoyed it and started fencing. By September I was invited to join the intermediate class and am still loving it.

1. "I like fencing because we battle without anger we win without injuries or we lose without shame" - Maddy aged 10

2. "I love fencing because all of my favourite heroes from all my favourite action movies learnt to fence. I want to be just like my heroes: Peter Pan and Hook from Peter Pan, Inigo Montoya and the Man In Black, from Princess Bride, oh of course Puss In Boots and many more. Learning how to fence will also help with my acting skills because I attend Drama School. I've made so many new and fantastic friends at fencing and my friends and I always enjoy playing fencing games and learning new moves and tricks! That is why fencing is absolutely AWESOME!" - Sarah aged 9

3." I like fencing because it keeps me fit and healthy, but while I'm fencing I don't feel I'm sweating (but I am after !!), and it is great fun, although I'm not a competitive person. I also like that it isn't a sport that many people do, and it's great that I can be able to do such a different sport to other people. But I think that I enjoy fencing mostly because I have such good instructors" - Chiara aged 9

4. I love fencing because it is a very different sport, all the moves are interesteing and I think fencing is a very fast sport, therefore it will help me with my personal reflex in the future" - Nathan aged 9
