Fencing has been dubbed as “Physical Chess”, as it is an extremely aerobic and tactical sport like boxing or martial arts, with emphasis on speed, agility, fast reflexes; and less on brute strength. It provides a rigorous workout for BOTH body and mind; and contrary to popular notion, fencing is very safe, too. With proper fencing gear, the probability of getting injured is very very low.
For more information on the summer camps, please call Peter at (0917) 529 0486 and (02) 468 5834, or email at [email protected]; and visit at www.facebook.com/viciousbrainiacfencing.
