The Fencing of Jackson Wang

You may know Jackson Wang from GOT7, but did you know before Jackson became the1akfre9 rapper, singer and dancer that we all love he was a former national sabre fencer.

Fencing is a sport where two competitors fight using a Rapier-style sword and win points my making contact on their opponent. A sabre is on of the three weapons used in modern fencing, this weapon is different as its possible to score with the edge of the blade and makes for very fast movements and attacks.

Jackson began his fencing training at the age of ten. He’s won multiple awards as he was taught by his father and other professional coaches. Jackson was on the Hong Kong fencing team and in 2010  during 7faa1467c98563fcd698a94a9421dda3d5cf4e17v2_hqthe Summer Youth Olympics he ranked 11th. He also won first place at the Asian Junior and Cadet Fencing Championships in 2011. He was even offered a scholarship for Stanford for fencing, but he turned it down to purse singing.

So big question is who wants to try fencing now?
