about fencing

Fencing is a combat sport, wherein fencers learn how to handle three types of weapons: épée, sabre and/or foil. Points are scored by touching or “hitting” opponents with the tip or blade of your sword. It is both physical and technical, a complete sport that:

  • Improves observation skills, alertness and decision-making;
  • Increases confidence and self-control;
  • Works the heart and teaches resistance;
  • Helps manage stress and foster concentration;
  • Promotes balance and flexibility.
