About Fencing

What is Fencing?

Fencing, the art of swordsmanship, has been practiced for centuries. First, it was to train for deadly combat—the duel. Now it is for Olympic gold. Through fencing you can acquire the reflexes of a boxer, the legs of a high-jumper and the concentration of a tournament chess player. The sport develops agility, strength, speed and cunning. And because of the speed of its action, fencing is considered the fastest martial sport. But, most importantly, it’s fun!
