Fencing is a modern versatile sport, which involves intensive use of the whole body. During fencing, the fencer has to outsmart his or her opponent. This can be done through subtle feints or unexpected attacks. Timing is also very important. Stay alert to the counterattack, because the opponent may have seen through your action.
