History of Fencing

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

The so-called Italian school modernised and improved the rules of classical Fencing, creating the new elegant sport of Fencing. Later, the French school adjusted and refined the laws of the Italian school.

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

Common Injuries 

Fencing is a combat sport that uses bladed weapons, and injuries can occur. Therefore, it is important to wear the correct protective clothing and use the proper techniques to ensure that any injuries sustained are only minor.

Fencing Equipment

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

First, the weapon can be a foil or a sabre, depending on the type of Fencing.

Second, protective clothing is a significant part of fencing gear. It consists of jackets, gloves, socks, shoes, and breeches made with tough cotton or nylon with a layer of Kevlar. Masks are also worn.

Third, high-tech electrical equipment includes a body cord and electrically conductive materials that cover the fencers' bodies. This helps determine whether or not and where a Fencer has been struck.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions

If you have been Fencing before and may have had an injury or accident whilst participating in Fencing, you must declare this when purchasing a policy.

We have several providers who can offer travel insurance, including Fencing if you have a pre-existing medical condition.
