History of Fencing

Although the activity history goes back many centuries, Fencing as a modern sport emerged in the late 1800s in Italy.

Also known as Olympic Fencing, Fencing as a competitive sport is one of only five sports that have been included in every single one of the Modern Olympics, the other four are Gymnastics, Swimming, Cycling and Athletics.

Common Injuries

As a combat sport that uses bladed weapons, injuries can occur when Fencing and so it is important to wear the correct protective clothing and use the right techniques to make sure that any injuries sustained are only minor.

Fencing Equipment

There are a few essential components to the basic Fencing equipment.
