    The science is in:  physical activity boosts your brainpower. Intuitively, it seems natural that physical fitness would be linked to sharper intelligence, and according to a recent presentation at the 57th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), exercise makes you smarter.  This is good news for everyone, but particularly so for kids in school looking to make the grade. Fencing is already a sport associated with intellectualism, often called “physical chess” by coaches, fencers, and fans.  Participation in the this sport requires fitness and concentration, a powerhouse duo when it comes to increasing brainpower.

    Great athletes have an uncanny ability to separate. Separate the moment from their environment, their conscious thoughts from their actions and even one part of their personality from the rest. We recently met up with Liana Henderson Semel a kind and articulate sixteen-year-old, Junior Olympic Silver Medalist in Women’s Foil.

Visit the Fencing Academy of Westchester at FenceWestchester.com. Here Head Coach and Director Slava Grigoriev has brought together an incredible international coaching staff filled with former Olympians and World Champions. His program is dedicated to helping all students gain self-confidence, coordination and the focus necessary to realize their full potential as athletes.
