Health Benefits of Fencing

What Is It?

Hear the word fencing and images of famous swordplay duels from the Star Wars film franchise or the swashbuckling Douglas Fairbanks films of yesteryear quickly spring to mind.

But did you know fencing is also an Olympic sport and a great way for non-Olympians to get and stay fit?

Yes, this elegant, prestigious combat sport heralds a rich historical tradition of weaponry and war. With either a foil, epee, or saber in hand you try to score points by hitting your opponent with your weapon while moving back and forth on an area called a piste. For safety reasons fencers now wear facemasks, gloves and protective jackets.
