Awesome exercise for kids.
I am not sure what to call that - Plastic Sabres with Rings? More importantly, let me mention capacity. I prefer to have no more than 6-8 students per station. ...So for larger classes, e.g., I have 24 1st and 2nd graders at one school this semester, I break them up right away into three teams. In all honesty, i am not sure what the fencing specific benefits are. In full disclosure, I "stole" these excerciszes from the Italians, but I can confirm two things. Beginners love it and the focus on the rings takes their mind of the footwork.
Read my friend David's post.
I need to share this for all of you, post your thoughts.
The final of the Helsinki Bolognese Open 2015 between me and Axel Pettersson. This fight was extremely intense, but regardless of being tired and under pressure... we kept good form all the way to the end. The fight was very even, extremely enjoyable and I think it captured very well the ideal of what good sidesword fencing should be like.

Shout out to the organizers of the Queen's U. Fencing tournament this weekend. Well organized, events were well spaced and the staff (Reffing, piste managers et...c) fantastic. I even got
Me some hardware. Gold in vet and silver on the senior (open) sabre. Huge, huge surprise on the later. There's something about old dogs and new tricks.
I know I learned this through fencing. Pushed my body to the limits and achieved good results. Enjoy!
Excellent clip, fencing is looking better and better in games.
