Fencing 19/01/2005

This Fencing taster was organised by the 8th day UK, about 12 of us met at the Finnsbury leisure centre, to get our hands on some swords. We had an introductory session explaining the basics, and showing us how swords had changed during the ages. Then a series of warm up exexercises before getting into the basic moves of lunging and the like before getting to have a couple of matches at the end. I had a match with Graham and then Ross. By the end of the session we had well overun our hour, so it was good value for money. It was shame I had to rush off afterwards.
