As a licensed pediatrician, Denise FitzSimon must live by the code of "do no harm."However, put a sabre in her hands and she won't be making any promises. FitzSimon, a Texas native, moved to the area about five months ago and brought her fencing acumen along with her.After taking up the sport five years ago, she quickly rose up the ranks to becoming the third ranked fencer in the country in the women's sabre 40-49 category.Despite her achievements she is the first to admit that fencing has not exactly caught on in the mainstream. "It's a different sport," FitzSimon said."I've had people ask me what kind of fence I like to build." She first picked up fencing after her son had taken up the sport.After starting out on the Epee, which is more predominant in Texas, FitzSimon eventually took up the sabre, favoring its faster attacking style.While other women her age were taking up yoga and exercise cla.sses, FitzSimon decided she wanted a different form of exercise. "I prefer something more active to get out my aggressive tendencies," she said with a laugh. Sabre fencing certainly has provided that.The suits that FitzSimon and other fencers wear are lined with Kevlar to stop any chance of the dull blades actually stabbing competitors.They do nothing to stop the bruises from hard sabre blows.University of Texas fencing Coach Paul Schimelman, under whom FitzSimon trained the past several years in Texas, believes that FitzSimon and the sabre are a good fit.To rise to her current level, FitzSimon has had to defeat younger, faster women."He whipped my you-know- what…but it was really cool," FitzSimon said."There just aren't many sports like that."Having competed against former Olympians and fenced against national champions from different countries, FitzSimon next hopes to take her game to the next level with the U.S Senior World Team when she reaches the minimum age limit of 50.
