Fencing is the actions of the go between for a thief and buyer of the thief's stolen goods. The buyer may unwittingly buy stolen goods from a fence in yard sales, flea markets, through classified ads, or other traditional markets. A shrewed form of fencing is when the fencer poses as a fence for stolen goods and sells cheap illegal imitations of name brand goods at high prices under the pretence that they are more expensive legit versions.
Pawn shops are no longer very good for fencing since the persons selling to them are finger printed, and there is strict accounting of all the goods sold.

Fencing is the art or practice of attack and defense with the foil, épee, or sabre. All three of the weapons have their own distinct history, blade, guard, and target area. Fencing is an excellent outlet for stress and aggression in an artful form of expression. It involves a level of cunning similar to that of chess. Much of the terminology is French and official tournaments are conducted in French.
Aldo Nadi, the winner of three gold medals and one silver medal in the 1920 Olympics in Antwerp is one of the greatest fencing masters of all time.

a modern sport based on the traditional martial art of european swordplay. made up of three different disciplines - foil, epee, and saber, of which saber is without a doubt the best.

positive aspects include the opportunity to learn intelligent risk taking, how to win without being obnoxious and how to lose without getting flustered, the opportunity to learn at your own pace and the challenge of unravelling the mystery of the game.

negative aspects include ignorant referees, the atrocious cost of equipment and participation in tournaments, the difficulty of finding competent instruction, and the compulsion of every greenhorn newbie to turn into the fencing master when someone just a week or two newer to the sport is around.
fencing is simply the best

Fencing is a sport derived from western swordfighting. In its modern form, it is like a linear, low-impact form of boxing. Electronics are now used to detect hits (or "touches") and the game is more about strategy and skill than strength.

It has three main forms - foil (only hit opponent's torso, all hits made with point), épée (hit anywhere, can only use point) and sabre (hit torso, arms and head using any part of the blade inc. point). Foil and sabre have a system called "right of way" for decided who gets the points. In épée, if you hit, you score a point.

It is "explosive" - meaning most of the actions done will be rapid changes of pace (as opposed to say, "endurance" activities like running marathons or satisfying one's girlfriend).
A: Did you see the Olympic fencing?
B: Some - it's the only one where you can't see how fit the athletes are because they're wearing three layers of kit and metal blocks on their heads.
A: You're not a fencer, are you?
