The sport of fencing
Fencing is a combat sport derived from old sword fighting and dueling in the 1400s. Before being a sport, fencing was used to train swordsmen for duels and combat. Current day fencing is a competitive sport with participants around the world. Fencing is included in the Summer Olympics, is a collegiate sport, and is popular internationally. Fencing is an academic sport that engages its participants both physically and mentally. It not only requires control and focus but tactics and quick thinking. Fencing is known for its focus on strategy and mental engagement. Kids from a variety of backgrounds and communities benefit from learning to fence because fencing improves focus and coordination and self control. You can learn more about fencing on our links page HERE.
