Starting fencing

What is it like?

Fencing is a sport based on the ancient art of sword-fighting. The aim is to hit your opponent whilst not being hit yourself - fencing is the art of defence.  Since both fencers usually have a similar training, there is as much thinking as doing.  Several people have described fencing as "physical chess".
