If you really want to fence in that way I would suggest travelling france, germany, hungary or somewhere like the us - that way you get both the 'joy' of different clubs and also get to do the travelling bit and learn about other countries (and get better at fencing)

good idea!!!
i want to do that in my gap year too!!! (long way off though-im only 15!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

-20th April 2004, 14:31
That sounds kinda groovy!? I only got 1 year left then i might try that!

-20th April 2004, 15:55
Well ok truth out im in year 11 (GCSE exam year and 16th birthday year) and this is only a idea at the moment, the problem with other countries for me is a suffer from a middle ear condition meaning long travelling is painful (any trip in which ones ears wud pop) how ever i spose this pain only last a few days a week tops so abroad could be fun, but i mean in the UK i could see most of you guy :tongue:

I don't think fencing is genetic...

'Ah, you have the Golubitsky gene!'

It only runs in families because then the younger fencer has a chance to go to competitions, to train up e.t.c.
And will generally be more motivated, if they like fencing.

-21st June 2004, 12:44
Well the Pual family hav't done badly.

-21st June 2004, 12:48
But you can't just say that's because they had good genes. I'm sure they all trained very hard to get where they are today. But they could train together, and this is an advantage.

-21st June 2004, 12:54
Yeah i agree with that.

*note to self train harder*

-21st June 2004, 15:03
hmmm, would someone like to lend me some motivation to be used all the time?
