My name is Peter, my son Sameer has been fencing for 15 months now. He is 9yrs old and his weapon is Epee.
I find myself lacking in knowledge of this fine sport and all the things a supportive parent needs to know.
If anyone has any advice or guidance to share, it would be greatly received.
In August after a chat with a respected coach. I began to ferry Sameer to other fencing clubs as a guest fencer
to help him obtain experience from fencing new/fresh fencers. I also entered Sameer into as many competitions as we could to help his fencing grow stronger.
Now I wonder if too many competitions is a bad thing. On some competitions, Sameer loves the interaction with other boys and treats it like a Play day. Other days he wants the win and goes for it.
I am not the pushy parent. I keep checking with him on if his happy and in the things he wants to do.
Thank you for reading.
