Jon Dick Learns the Olympic Sport of Fencing

Posted: Updated:
               Charlotte, N.C. - The Olympic sport of fencing is similar to a sword fight, except the ‘swords’ are metal whips and you have to wear a beekeeper looking hat to avoid losing an eye. 

               Queen City Fencing is a new training facility that offers programs for people of all skill levels.  In the past, fencing has been a sport mostly practiced by the aristocrats, but now anyone can get involved.

               Jon Dick’s only fencing knowledge is what he learned from watching the ‘Three Musketeers,’ but he gave it a shot anyway, and failed miserably. 

               Queen City Fencing is holding a free open house event on Saturday, April 5 from 11:00-3:00PM.  Coach Bates will lead informational and instructional sessions throughout the day that cover the basics of fencing.  You can also suit up and try it out for yourself.
