About Fencing

If you fancy yourself as a quick modern duellist with a flashing blade in your hand, then fencing is for you. There is no real advantage to be gained in mere brute strength tactics - this is a sport of speed and finesse.

Control of movement, quickness of thought and execution can in great measure overcome the lack of height, reach or strength. Fencing is equally suitable for both sexes who can fence together on equal terms and under the same rules in the club situation, but in official events sexes are separated and fight their own competition.
