WHAT IS FENCING?
Fencing is one of the oldest sports to be featured in the Modern Olympic Games. Drawing its roots from, of course, sword fighting, fencing exists today as a rapidly growing sport that teaches discipline, coordination, athleticism, critical thinking and confidence, all in a fun and incredibly safe environment.
There are three different fencing weapons or disciplines: foil, epee and saber. Most fencers specialize in only one weapon, as each one takes time and dedication to master.
