Play a sport or just a game you like and you can score a couple of points.
That’s what the Australian Fencing Academy’s new sport of choice is.
It’s a way to hone your skills as a student and to get into competitions that you’d never have thought of.
Its the perfect sport for young people who like to practice sport or go to competitions.
You could do a lot of work for a couple hours or more and it’s a really fun way to get your body in shape and get in shape.
“I just love to watch it.
I’ve never done anything like this before,” said student, Hannah, who just wanted to be known as ‘hannah’ after her name in the sport.
The academy is located in Sydney’s east and has about 300 students, with the majority being male.
It’s a very competitive sport and the majority of its students are first-time athletes.
“It’s not something I’ve been playing much of my life, I’ve just been doing it since I was about 12 or 13, so it’s been a bit of a challenge for me to get my body in condition to be able to do it,” Hannah said.
Hannah and her mates are getting their hands on the new sport.
“I’ve been practising and it was really fun,” Hannah admitted.
“Being in my own little world, it’s really fun to go into it and not know how many people are watching, or what the rules are.”
While the sport is relatively new, it has been around for a while.
In the past 10 years, there have been several competitions held, with more than 10,000 athletes participating.
“We’ve had the Sydney Open and a few other competitions,” the academy’s director, Stephen O’Donnell, said.
“A lot of them have been held at venues across the city, but we’ve also had events in some of the outer suburbs, like the South Yarra and the CBD.”
He said the competition has been “very good” with about 1,200 participants this year, compared to last year’s record of about 1.1,500.
“The competition has really helped our sport grow and we have lots of people who want to compete in the next round and we’re very fortunate to have so many young people interested in the competition,” Mr O’Brien said.
As well as helping young athletes get their bodies in shape, it also gives students a new way to enjoy the sport, with an emphasis on teamwork and socialising.
“You’ll see in the video you’re in the ring with a few people and you’ll see all the little boys coming up to you and chatting, so you’ll get to really bond with them,” Mr Fogg said.
While most young athletes train together, there is one young man who trains alone, and the club’s president, Matthew O’Connell, is looking for ways to make the sport more fun for everyone.
“Some people will have a really competitive sport, and we try and provide opportunities for people to come together and play sports and socialise,” he said.
To help kids get their foot in the door, the academy also runs a competition every other Saturday where students can compete in various challenges, including running, jogging, swimming and cycling.
“They can get into other sport competitions and also some of our kids can compete with us and get into the national competition for the country,” Mr Eder said.
There’s also a competition for boys and girls aged eight to 18 to compete against each other and try and get to the top of the leaderboard.
“These are really fun competitions where we try to get our kids to get in the best shape and also get them to learn a new skill, so that’s one of the main things we try for,” Mr Janson said.
