I hate exercise. Getting to the gym and pumping iron, running, I hate it. Why? It feels like a job. And its boaring. BUT WAIT!!! theres something better. Swordfighting combine cardio with strength training and you can't get bored when steel is being swung at you. So I love exercising now. I've been fencing for 13 yrs now all types, olympic three weapon, rapier dagger, broadsword, kendo. Its a blast and peels off the pounds. Larsen ( the guy featured opposite me in the photos) is my workout pal and he is just learning but gives me a run for the money. below are photos of broadsword action but I will post Rapier action as well. We wear armor while rapier fighting and go full tilt. Its awesome.
Oh yeah by the way PIXAR is looking for board artists so get your portfolios in asap!!!!
Fighting after lunch
Proper stance is important( notice Larsen and I have switched to Rapiers)
Typical ward ( typical on lookers)

Larsen and me fighting on Skye- were all the great celtic warriors trained ( so what if we're using plastic swords)
