My hobby

I'm going to talk a bout my hoppy, My hobby is playing fencing. I practised fencing in my country before I coming to Australia. I'm a champion in my country of this game. There are three kinds of

swords, It depends on the target; in " epee'" all the bady. The second one we call the" florat" the targets are hands, chest and the back.The third one is "saber" the targets are the head,hands and chest.

We wear white clothes in this game. The first time I pleyed fencing was when I was in the first year of the university. I travelled to many countries to trains like Egypt,France,Germany, Italia...etc.

Many times I won when I played fencing in a championship. I have a lot of gold medals. The first time I played fencing it was difficult for me but after a month it become easy.

I hope to play fencing in Australia, and I'll search in the internet where I can practise fencing.
