The Sport
An introduction to the exciting sport of
its history, the various weapons and rules.

One of the oldest sports, Fencing is also very modern, being one of the first to make use of electronics in judging the hits.
It requires speed of thought and action, dexterity and tactical skills, often resembling highly mobile chess.

The very speed that often amazes first time spectators can make appreciation of what is going on the more difficult. Recent rule changes have been made to try to make the sport more readily understood by the spectator rather than for the competitors.

The following screens will take you through a little history, an introduction to the weapons and a little about modern competitive fencing
