History of Fencing
Although the activity's history goes back many centuries, Fencing as a modern sport emerged in the late 1800s in Italy.
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 as a competitive sport is one of only five sports included in every single one of the Modern Olympics; the other four are Gymnastics, Swimming, Cycling and Athletics.
As a combat sport that uses bladed weapons, injuries can occur when Fencing. So, wearing the correct protective clothing and using the proper techniques to ensure that any injuries sustained are only minor.
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 worn as well.
Third, high-tech electrical equipment includes a body cord and electrically conductive materials that cover the fencer's bodies. This helps determine whether or not, and where, a Fencer has been struck.
