...an all-inclusive sport, whether you’re male or female, aged 7–70, super fit, not-so-athletic, or anything in between.

There are three weapons used in modern fencing: foil, épée, and sabre. Each weapon has its own rules and strategies, and scoring hits on your opponent is dependent on the target area, which is different for all three weapons.

...a challenge that is both mental and physical, a great way to stimulate your brain and boost your fitness at the same time. Young and old alike can learn the tactics and techniques that make this sport so unique.

Fencing develops discipline, balance, coordination and sportsmanship. Fencing helps people of any gender or age to develop quicker reflexes and the ability to make fast decisions in tactical situations. The benefits often spread to many aspects of life!

Fencing ranks as one of the safest sports, due to specialised equipment, balistic rated clothing, and the strict rules of the sport.


The best way to start fencing is to join your local club.
