Fencing is a very technical sport of intelligence and bravery. Fencers have to identify the opponent’s weakness as quickly  as possible in order to win.Through fencing, we hope to develop our students’ concentration, attentiveness and agility.
Fencing equipment is  expensive, so it has not been a commonly played  sport in Hong Kong, not to mention  among grassroots families.

Sharing & Feedback

When I was asked to coach a new fencing class by IHKSports, I said yes straight away!. It is not about the coaching fee or the ability of the students. What mattered was IHKSports offered me a chance to help the kids to discover and reach their fencing potential without financial concerns.  

 

And one year into the class, I have not regretted my decision. Although it is a free-of-charge course, the students’ passion and concentration are no different from my other classes. They do not take the class for granted and some of them are very talented.

 

I still remember in our first inter-class friendly match, one of the students was so nervous that he refused to take part. Fortunately, with encouragement from staff, students and parents, he set foot on the fencing piste and managed to play quite well. After the game, he told me he needed to improve his skills. Simple words like these brought me job and fulfilment that can never be expressed in money. And that’s why I am teaching in IHKSports.

I am glad that they all like fencing. They went from knowing nothing to understanding theory, and are now at the stage of applying theories. Fencing requires judgment and reaction. It’s like playing rock, paper and scissors – when you’re about to do paper, you suddenly do scissors to surprise your opponent. I can see there are high potential students within the group.

Fencing has taught my daughter how to face failure. She used to dislike failure, and becomes unhappy when she encounters obstacles. Now she learns from it. Taking part in competitions have also taught her managing emotions. She suffered from nervousness in the past, and has now improved.
