Types of fencing

Most people think there are only one type of fencing matches. However, there are 3 types of fencing matches, both with different styles and rules.

The first style of fencing match is called epee. Eppe is allowed to hit anywhere in the body starting at the toe to the head. So the players are very careful of themselves, and the sword is very heavy than other two type of fencing. This match doesn’t end very fast because both players are very cautious with them selves.

The second type of match is called Sabre. Sabre is allowed to hit only your upper body. However, you dont actually need to poke the player, but you could win with just only the light touch on other players body. So eventually, this sword is very light and easy to swing around. However, if the both players hit the opponent at the same time, then they both raise up point when other two type of fencing match doesn’t and starts all over.

The Third type of Fencing match is called Foil. FOil is only allowed to hit the hip to your neck. You can’t hit the arms of the opponent and only the score counts if they hit the box of the body. This type of fencing is what I plays and which which requires a lot of focus on how to poke the opponent.

I played fencing for more than a year from now, and what I felt towards fencing is very different from the ordinary people who didn’t play fencing. Many people think fencing doesn’t require much energy, you might die playing fencing, and much more. And I will give my responses what I felt playing fencing.

When I tries to play fencing at the first time, I thought this wouldn’t require much energy, so I didn’t warm up and didn’t care a lot. However, as I played with the teacher along, I thought this required more energy than playing basket-ball. The move for going back and forth constantly trying to attack and fool the player is not an easy job. And so I thought experience is the number 1 importance in fencing. There are numerous ways to attack a player with difference steps, fakes, and the angle of the sword when attacking. Also, for blocking, there are not that much blocking positions, but you need a lot of  focus if you are trying to block. These sources of fencing actually makes fencing hard as it can possibly be.

Many people think you might die because the mask could break, and sword might not flit and go straight into you chest, and much more. But the sword actually is very wiggly and hard to poke straight, however if you get hit hard, then in is real pain. I always had 4 or 5 bruises in one full match.

I never watched this song, but by listening to this song, I just feel really sad about something what I did in the past. It fells really awkward when I listen to this song, but I think this song really has the power to change someone who is active into an inactive person.

This song came from the same movie, and this song was sang by one of the most popular minger in Korea. He has a very thick and low voice which gives more emotion to the song. This song has great lyrics which is about someone who left the main character and how he fells toward the someone before.

This winter break that I had was the worst break I ever had. First of all, I realized how hard the Korean students studied without complain to their parents. The reason I realized how had the Korean students studied is because I experienced the same situation as they did. At 8AM, I arrived in the Academy, took a practice test for 4 hours. When finished, I went up a floor and left my bag and started to listen to the lecture. After 2 hours of the lecture, we have 15 minutes break to eat lunch. The time was 2 o’clock and I was really hungry. After i ate Kimbab within 15 minutes, I went back again and started to study and listen to the lecture. I thought this place was like hell, but others didn’t actually care and was really focused on the teacher. After 3 more hours of the lecture, the academy finally finished at 6 o’clock. And I repeated this schedule for 5 days a week. After a week of this life cycle in the academy, I continued to lose emotion and feelings and I automatically fitted with the others and I was able to manage the 12 hours of lecture and tests. However, I felt I was changing, and I still feel it right now

One day, I wanted to have some information about Beethoven and his lifetime, and I read one article about “Emperor” which was Beethoven’s one of the best creation.

Before the was happened in 1809 where Napoleon started to conquer Austria, and where Beethoven lived. His city became conquered in 10 days with massive gun fights, bombs, and because of that he almost became deaf. However, he created some songs which were contained larger scale of music, more different kinds of emotion, and with great composing. He had created a masterpiece within his feeling towards the war. These are the songs that he had created and you can listen to the songs for free if you click the links below.

Ist, Allegro.

Description: This song shows big emotion during the fight and the sounds are so powerful that I can imagine being in the middle of the fight with both marching mighty, and also the soft parts of this music contains the rest and calmness without the war.

2nd, Adagio un poco mosso

Description: This song is what Beethoven made after the war, how peaceful and calm it is, and how dreadful the war was. And also the peace and happiness for all of the citizens who were in the town. I think this song is the best in within this album.

3rd, Rondo Allegro

Description: This is a song where Beethoven celebrates that the war has been finished. The music bounces with joy and with an happy end.

2. My Cherie Amour by Rod Stewart

4. Warm December by Julie London

Description: This song was arranged in 1965 by Julie London. She has one of the most warm and cozy voice in the World. However, because the song is so short, I have to listen to this song for 2 or 3 times to get warm.

5. Angelina by Tommy Emmanuel

Description: This is a classical fingerstyle guitar song which is very popular in these days. This song feels very soft and warm and always think, wow, acoustic guitars can make such a beautiful sound.


I really recommend these 5 songs to listen when you want to relax our mind.










Nowadays, our daily life is full of advertisements, and it is inevitable for us to choose what to eat with consideration of advertisements. Then, some people believe that it is advertising that is the main cause of unhealthy eating habits. However, as far as I am concerned, other factors such as work load and price of choosing healthy food are more important causes of unhealthy eating habits.
First of all, some people are so busy that they have little time to eat; some other people just take work priority to meals, and they would not like to eat until they finish their work. Take auditors as an example. During working over time, even over night is quite common, and auditors concern more about keeping energy rather than eating healthily. Advertisements may even not in their concerns. Also, price of healthy food is a more important attribute than advertisements. People may be aware of healthy food, but they just cannot afford it. For example, in the supermarket, the organic food is usually as twice expensive as or even twice more expensive than ordinary food. Unless someone is indifferent to price, usually people will choose food match with their income. Similarly, you will see that people may choose to eat Chinese food, healthier, with more nutrition but more expensive once a month or even less frequently, while they may eat junk food, like fried chicken every day.
