Twenty Years later an Olympic dream comes true again!
Few people's dream of going to the Olympics comes true, even fewer people get to go twice, and you can count on one hand the number of people who qualify twice with a twenty year break in between - Igor was an athlete at the 2008 Olympics in Bejing and he was also a Bronze medalist at the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
 
Benefits of Fencing
Physical Benefits
Everyone who fences regularly can expect to experience physical benefits. As a fitness boost, the fast, intense pace of fencing provides an excellent aerobic workout. Its fast pace, including intense footwork, exercises the cardiovascular system.
The pace is also a good way of burning calories. It is estimated that a 180-pound man will burn about 380 calories per hour fencing. It is a solid workout - working the buttocks, stomach and thigh muscles in particular, while increasing the fencer's stamina and coordination.
All types of fencing develop strength, suppleness, agility in the legs and improves overall flexibility.
Over a period of time fencers become swift and agile, develop balance and learn to concentrate and make snap decisions in the heat of the moment. Bear in mind that if you are to reap the maximum benefit from fencing, it is a sport that requires a certain amount of dedication.
Fencing shares some basic foundations with some of the martial arts (or even dance and music for that matter!). Some examples of these: measure, tempo change, timing, velocity, and proper execution and simplification of technique. Therefore, students can associate the learning from one subject or skill set to another, linking the common ground in order to help hasten the learning, and broaden their life perspective.
Mental Benefits
Fencing is an excellent mental exercise, often likened to chess. It helps relieve stress, which can have health benefits such as lowering blood pressure. It is also a great way of countering stress. Anyone who's ever wanted to let off steam and frustration will know that an act of controlled aggression is often the best way of releasing pent-up tension. Fencing provides that outlet as it allows aggression to be taken out in a safe, controlled environment.
Any fencer who makes a serious effort to learn the art cannot help but develop greater powers of observation and a greater understanding of strategy. This development of strategical thinking can be applied not only to fencing and other forms of combat, but to any situation of conflict or competitive interaction with other people, even in business and politics!
A fencer, to become a good fencer, must learn to develop a complete understanding of a system, and learn how to judge and determine their opponent’s thoughts and character so as to anticipate their actions. This ability is essential in life, and the fencer must learn not only this skill of prediction, but also how to take advantage of the knowledge it produces and move into what fencers call ‘second intention’. The fencer must learn to use this ability to yield to the opponent, letting them think they are in control of the bout, meanwhile the fencer already knows everything that the opponent will do, and is in fact setting them up, controlling all their actions without appearing to.
Social Benefits
Fencing offers the opportunity to travel both domestically and abroad to those who become proficient and seek competition. Very skilled fencers may have the opportunity to compete in prestigious tournaments including the Olympic Games.
The social rewards should not be overlooked. Club members often become friends and competitors find themselves meeting hundreds of people over the years as they travel to competitions locally, nationally, and internationally.
The sport of fencing has a long tradition with the universities across Canada and United States, some of them offering scholarships for skilled fencers.

Fencing can benefit people in many different ways, depending primarily on how seriously the student commits to its study, and what they are trying to learn from it. Many people who are reluctant to take part in team games enjoy the individuality of fencing.
Just as there are countless personal characteristics that contribute to becoming a good fencer, so are there countless aspects of fencing that appeal to nearly every individual. Some individuals may seek to compete, and success in competition will be due solely to their own efforts: matching their own skill, speed and intellect against those of an opponent; female competing equally with male. Other individuals enjoy the aesthetic pleasure of perfecting and performing disciplined movements correctly and studying the theory and language of fencing as pure recreation
What Will Fencing Do For Your Child?
Also of great import, fencing has much to offer in life lessons: thinking on your feet, dealing with a problem right there in the moment, thinking tactically to surmount that obstacle (which is usually presented in the form of another fencer). Then again, the astute fencer will often learn that they are their own obstacle at times (i.e. improper technique, timing, tenseness, 'robotic' reactions, etc.) - a key realization in preparing a future adult. And of course fencing requires one to be responsible for his or her own actions, as no one can score a point in fencing... except the fencer! No amount of coaching, no matter how well done, can score a touch for a fencer. They must accomplish this on their own. This concept is paramount to the success of a young person blossoming into a stellar adult!
Why Fence?
Finally, should all of the above fall to the wayside, fencing is always FUN!
Fantastic in bridging gaps between sexes, sizes, ethnicity and personality (as is seen when both young girls and boys defeat an opponent with technique and timing when confronted with brawn and bulk!). Fencing is a great solution to balancing a student's mind, body and spirit in order to temper a successful adult!

Fencing, a match of mind and body
It's a game!
It's a sport!
It's a challenge!
