I, for one, would love to have a regular activity that I could take my kids to that doesn’t require a half hour of persuasion, bribery and force in order to get them to go.
Fencing for Kids is actually a not-so-new phenomena that’s beginning to really capture kids’ and parents’ attention. Kids can start as early as 4 (with plastic equipment to begin with, and at 7 they usually “graduate” to metal equipment – maybe a scary thought? But I’m willing to bet they can handle those slim swords more safely than adults?).
And according to Manhattan Fencing, fencing has a lot of benefits for your youngster:
♦ discipline (don’t all kids need this?)
♦ balance (fewer skinned knees?)
♦ coordination (for your future surgeon?)
♦ quick reflexes (this may actually really come in handy during those sibling rivalry fights)
♦ mental acuity (this is good for those arguments with the parents)
♦ good sportsmanship (get them some friends who they have something in common with… builds confidence, right?)
Plus they get to wear those ultra cool white outfits, right?
