A couple of weeks ago we started doing a 1o week beginners fencing class. Just to do something different and get ourselves off the couch.
It is fun, but also a little frustrating, only because Im still learning.
It is definitely good for fitness. It is really hot in the outfits, so I sweat a lot and burn over 1,000 calories per two hour session.
bf is better at it than I am. The teacher says shorter people have better speed (bf) and taller people (like me) have to rely on our reach.
Ive never been really good at any sport.
I think Im a bit unco, so have to get it in my head that this is just for fun and it doesnt matter if I get beaten, as I am only a beginner.
