Are you looking for a new experience for your kids? Do you want something that will challenge and grow them while still being fun and exciting? Though it might not leap to mind Fencing is an excellent way to do that on multiple levels. Not only is it beneficial physically, mentally, and socially but it’s also very beginner-friendly. Because of the sport’s unique combination of benefits and challenges beginner camps can be an excellent way to help build strong kids.

Fencing Is Exciting And Beginner Friendly 

While other summer activities might not appeal to many kids a beginner fencing class has a unique draw. Something about swordplay elevates it in the minds of children who might not be interested in other sports. What kid hasn’t imagined themselves the hero of a swordfight?  As kids learn the real skills of the sport they can see themselves as the heroes of their favorite book, movie, or video game. 

Another advantage is it’s a very beginner-friendly sport. Since the various elements must be learned, “from the ground up,” so to speak, your background doesn’t matter as much as your willingness to learn. The competitive nature of the sport is less about who is the strongest or fastest and more about each person learning to play to their strengths. So even if your kid never thought of themselves as a fencer a beginner camp is a great way for them to explore a new experience. 

Fencing Is Mentally Stimulating

Even beyond the obvious entertainment potential, this exciting sport exposes kids to a whole new way of combining physical activity, social interaction, and mental exercise. This unique combination is why it’s often called “physical chess,” and it encourages campers to engage in…

  • Problem-Solving
  • Strategic Thinking
  • Focused Effort
  • Careful Timing

The combination of mental and physical activity brings a whole new level to the lessons they are learning. As campers learn the basics of this sport they will encounter new ways to approach challenges and opportunities both in and out of class. 

Fencing Is Physically Beneficial

Easily the most obvious benefit of fencing classes is physical. Though you don’t have to be an “athletic” person to try them, they involve a considerable amount of healthy exercise. A few of the potential physical benefits of beginner fencing camps are…

  • Getting Kids Up and Moving
  • Teaching Them Hand-Eye Coordination
  • Improving Posture
  • Building Ballance And Flexibility

This isn’t just a way to burn off some of that extra energy it’s a way to put it to good use! Maybe they’ll even discover a new, lifelong passion!

Fencing Classes Are Socially Helpful

The social benefits of these classes are maybe a little less obvious than the physical ones but they are just as real. Though the sport itself is one-on-one fencing classes can help a child in a number of important ways socially by…

  • Giving A Sense Of Community
  • Introducing New People And Experiences
