Fencing is a unique sport - one of the coolest things is every bout against an opponent is different. Even if you fenced them last week they could bring a completely different thinking or style to this bout.
Like golf fencers are all ages, and like a good wine they tend to improve with age.
If you fence socially its a great way to keep fit and make friends. If you are competitive there are great competitions nationally and frequent international events where you will frequently find Kiwi fencers.
