Women in fencing: my sword fighting journey

Oct 03 2018

My journey into fencing started eight years ago when I turned 40. At the time, I had a pre-schooler at home and I was doing very little exercise except for walking and cycling. I was not as keen to go to the gym as before having the baby, because it wasn’t motivating enough.
