Games

Minecraft, Roblox, Legend of Zelda, Mario, Sonic and Pacman. Pretty much everyone knows about at LEAST one of these games, some are more modern, others have been around for just about a century.

My favourite 3D first person game.... Fencing

Fencing comes from the ancient art of swordfighting, which over the years has been a fascination I have had from reading history books or watching jedi fighters take on each other on the big screen.

Fencing is not a sport that gets a lot of exposure in the media, apart from Eurosport it is hardly ever on TV. So I had only very little knowledge of the game when I first started looking for a club. In fact the only thing I really knew was that I was quite good at swashbuckling my dad.

Fortunately after some searching I found a club only a few miles away and they offered to join their training hour for five times before I had to make a choice. During these sessions I got to know about the basic rules, the type of weapons and got to learn a bit of French as well ;-)

So... en garde....pret.... allez
