WHAT IS FENCING
Fencing is the sport of swordplay. It began thousands of years ago as a way of training soldiers to fight with swords and eventually became a competitive sport that anyone can participate in. Fencers face off on a 14m x 2m strip with one of three kinds of swords and duel each other not for blood or honor, but points. Fencing is a great example of a sport where you compete on your own, but can also work together as group or team to win a match
The sport of fencing is a uniquely classic sport. Fencing develops discipline, balance, coordination, and sportsmanship. It helps youth develop quicker reflexes and the ability to make fast analyses of tactical situations which transfer to problem solving skills. Mentally, it is mind consuming, allowing not a moments break earning its nickname “Physical Chess.”
Fencing is one of the only four sports to be included in every modern Olympic Games, since the first in 1896. Fencing was also a sport in the original Olympic Games in ancient Greece. The tip of the fencing weapon is the second fastest moving object in sport; the first is the marksman’s bullet.
