email from someone on the fencing team

Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer for Iron Maiden (once ranked 7th in the UK for men's foil) was quoted as having this to say about fencing:

"Fencing is physical, mental and spiritual. It devours you, from the deepest bottom of your soul to the tip of your toes. Everytime you enter a game you offer the opponent the ability to crush your ego. And if it's an important match then it's more important than life and death. Mentally, fencing is fiercely brutal and humiliating."

A poet's interpretation of the fencing experience... share this with anyone who thinks fencing is for wusses!
