Don't Fence Me In

A handsome color scheme for Halberstadt’s Fencing Club on S. Van Ness. Ever notice how it matches that of the “No Dumping” notices by sewer drains?

I never noticed this place before, but according to Yelp, it’s legit:

This is where I go for a great workout and to blow off some steam.  There’s nothing better than grabbing a sword and stabbing someone to make you forget about the work day.

It’s no secret that I’m a sword owner now. Maybe I should take up fencing? After all what’s more macho than a shrimpy, shirtless, asian man brandishing a foil?

Oh wait:

    I took fencing in high school instead of PE. It was kind of fun. Ladies love good posture. I should know. I don’t have it.

    of course it’s legit. it’s older than you no doubt and many an olympic athlete has trained there.

    hey, btw I just invented the next new thing. I call it a “wheel.”
