Better Than Football



Not every kid likes team sports. Some of them actually hate it and are perfectly happy to never set foot on a field of any sort.
Our 11 year old is one of them. He prefers movie watc
hing over most things, so we decided to help him find an activity that he could do away from the cheering crowds.
Fencing was just right. He could do alot of great stuff like stabbing and lunging, all at his own pace.
There is a certain risk of death (he wishes) and the outfit is way cool.
And here's the BIG bonus....no spending every Saturday sitting on a field watching him play.
On Guard!!

Oh yes ..... it's great when they find a sport that they love doing! I was very pleased my kids didn't like cricket ...... a match can sometimes take up to 6 hours!!!! That's half your weekend gone!

His stance looks very good already!
