“Fencing is like playing chess at 100 miles an hour” – is a common descriptor often used for fencing, and it is so very true, once the mask goes on the games begin – both physical and mental.
Fencing is really three sports in one due to the three weapons – foil, epee and sabre – and there are dynamic differences. Foil is a point weapon, with a limited target area. Action is fast and smooth. Please use the links above for Yellow & Orange Armbands to learn about the skills developed in our classes. For information on Green (and higher Armbands) please contact the club directly.
