Going through the motions of it helps if you keep at it for a long enough time.

Yeah, usually work with blunted weapons when people'll agree to it. Usually they pussy out for wood.

I've never weapon sparred before but I have heard good things about it in most circles. I myself keep mostly to contemporary strength training, and occasionally kettle bell training.

I run a bit (actually I'll compete in a half-marathon this Sunday), and I just recently started going to the gym as well. Nothing serious though.

It's quite fun, and can get pretty intense. I do it more for the enjoyment than the actual exercise, though.

I also play rep soccer twice a week with a game on Saturdays, and in the summer I bike to the gym wih my cousin because all the snow is gone.

16.0 I think. I'll probably have a much better score by the end of High School though.

If you're talking fencing, no. I prefer weapons with a bit more weight to them.
