Fencing is a sport of skill, speed and finesse in which there is little advantage in brute strength. Fencing is both a physical and a mental workout, in which fencers learn to hone their strategies against opponents of varying skill levels, and build up physical endurance, agility, and accuracy.
Fencing offers a multitude of benefits. Confidence and sportsmanship are gained through participation in fencing and extend throughout other areas of life. You can begin fencing as a youth or an adult – for fun, for fitness, or to train to compete. Best of all are the friends you will make.
Everyone! Fencing is an inclusive sport for people of any age, gender or ability.
