    Fencing does look like a lot of fun, it's such a shame that it's really niche though, I've tried to look for adult fencing classes near me but the closest one is 40 minutes away

      It's worth the drive bro, trust me. You'll head there really excited and you'll leave tired as hell, and fencing tends to have a great community of people.

      I wanted to like fencing, but the actual sport part of it is so fricking cheesy. I'd rather just run far and lift heavy.

      Try Classical, it's even more niche then saber fencing but it's a lot more enjoyable, not to mention a real workout.

    What a moronic "sport". Since there's no danger it's basically a reaction competition.

        I'm just saying that its extremely gay for an activity that was clearly meant to involve danger to have no danger. It's basically airsoft but with sticks instead of nerf guns. Just play a normal fricking sport, with normal rules instead of larping as D'Artagnan

          hey manlet, if I want to kill someone I use a gun, but if I want to enjoy a sport, I fence.

          As you're sub 5'10" you should try sabre

            more like you sit on the fence, with a post up your ass. shove that double sided "saber"(dildo) up your ass and shut up

            and quit larping you are sub 5'0

          What do you mean? You think they were always putting dudes in danger in ye olden times when they were training fencing?
          Doubtful.

      no shit they don't kill eachother what would be the point of that? it still hurts. my trainer lost his left ball because he sparred in shorts and his sack got hooked and torn out. it can easily still get bloody, i've seen it.

    Ah yes let me draw my saber and challenge my assailant to honorable combat instead of using a gun.

    You know Savate exists precisely because fencing became useless for self-defense after the ban on civilian swords, right?

    I love sabre fencing, but I'm very mediocre. Any tips on how to get better?

      Used to fence as a kid like 18 years ago, from that pov I'd probably go hard on bilateral T2-fibre training via kettlebell swings/snatches, wrist flexibility and endurance. In general static holds in lunge, and horse stance to prevent imbalances.

    Fencing should be so much cooler. It’s probably the absolute worst sport when it comes to expectations vs reality from a spectator point of view

      saber is cool AF if you watch in 0.25 and actually see the parry -> riposte crap they manage to pull

      Fencing will never make it as a spectator sport outside of the Olympics unfortunately, because the rules are an enormous barrier to entry for a casual.

    Fencing for fun sure. But fencing as the sterile streamlined lunge at eachother repeatedly sport version? Frick that

    >Gave up fencing after 10 years because kids
    I'm probably going to start going again once a week though. I'm dying to land a prime riposte after some tries to take me in 6. At least I still have my home gym either way.
