Cool article and video of fencing competition - LOTR scene Can't Post

This is a cool article about how this Hungarian fencing competition is being marketed as "just like in the movies." Check out the video with a LOTR scene (and swordfighting scenes from a lot of other movies too) - very clever!

Quite cool isnt it [In reply to] Can't Post

it is the World Championships though being hosted in Hungary, and not just a Hungarian competition. Still anything that raises the profile of the sport is good!

I loved that commercial.

When my son took fencing, someone remarked how there had been a big upsurge in interest because of the Zorro movie, The Mask of Zorro (1998).

I'm not sure if that had made my son interested. He never mentioned it as the case. But apparently those kinds of movies always resulted in kids wanting to check out fencing.

I think something similar happened with archery after Hunger Games.
