Why inspired by Fencing?

Fencing is often referred to as the chess of sports. It is highly strategic, disciplined and physical; requiring gross and fine body coordination while, simultaneously, strategizing, concentrating and being creative and resilient. Curtanna® provides a unique mix of physical, mental and social stimulation and excels at teaching children the art of friendly confrontation and conflict resolution in a safe and meaningful way.

Children feel a strong sense of belonging, both to a unique program and as part of the camaraderie formed during class. They feel part of something bigger than themselves. They develop a drive that comes from within, true self-confidence, which will trickle over into all other aspects of their lives. The more self-confident they get, the more willing they are to face new challenges.

Curtanna® also works the child’s individualism, promoting the relationship with their own body, emotions, attentional components, and brain development. The fencing-style individual confrontations make every child unavoidably conscious of their own "lights" (gained abilities and skills) and "shadows" (errors, difficulties or limitations). In both cases, the child is encouraged to strive towards improvement.

Curtanna’s multiple fencing-inspired exercises simultaneously work fine and gross motor skills, challenge the child’s visual-spatial, hand-eye and feet-hand-eye coordination, promoting inner-brain connections between the amygdala nucleus and the cortex while working all the elements that constitute the general concept of "attention" or "focus".

In addition to the brain-development, skills-development and child-development benefits mentioned above, Curtanna® is a gateway to the competitive sport of fencing. After learning the basic principles of fencing while playing, some Curtanna children may decide to join a local fencing club to continue a journey that could very well peak by participating in NCAA competitions, World Championships or the Olympic Games.
