yeet ya girl is gonna try to convince her mom to take fencing lessons (it's been like a month of studying technique and footwork by myself lmao)

Fencing and Swordplay are a big aspect of repertory theatre. Sadly, women seldom had the opportunity to learn the skills. It fascinates me to watch the orchestration and practice necessary to stage a convincing duel, swordplay, fight etc.
