Transcript "Practice, practice, practice" is the motto of the Fencing Club at UH. The club is a student sports club, though it also has had faculty members as participants at one time or another. It extends its invitation to all: anyone and everyone at the university. This year the club is composed of approximately 25 to 30 members. Membership has only one requirement: access to the Wellness center. By practicing fencing, one can achieve physical fitness while being a part of a unique medieval sport that is intense, yet low impacting. The game has been called "physical chess" because of the depth of the strategies involved. It can be performed by people of any age and always leaves room for improvement of its players. Fencing is also one of the few sports that has been an integral part of the Olympic games since its origin. The club is divided into two basic sectors. The beginners' classes are made up of members learning to practice the sport. Anyone dressed appropriately is supplied with equipment, training and techniques for play in these classes. Age, sex, experience and physical condition are not considered boundaries for the game. The second part of the club is composed of the team. This group practices diligently to play against other university fencing clubs such as those of TSU, Texas A & M and Baylor; these are all a part of Southwest Intercollegiate Fencing Association (SWIFA). In recent years, the UH Fencing club has nabbed these awards up for grabs at those contests. Aside from practicing for the game, the club indulges in fundraisers and other competitive tournaments against the other 13 fencing clubs around Houston. The members also like to bond as a group by going to movies and dinner together frequently. The latest version of this group was started in 1998, with many earlier versions fading in and out of existence. It all depends on the involvement, commitment and passion of its members for the game. *## Story by Sammer Nagra BACK ROW Julian Rodriguez, Robby Mettetal, Isacc Harvey, Santos Gaitan and Chukwuma FRONT ROW Benjamin Dickso, Carlos Gramajo, Chad Brown, Lucia Bonanartos and Matt I Members of the fencing uuu <_umpeit requirement of members is access to t i recreation center.
