Modern Fencing is devised from the "Noble Art and Science of Defensive Sword Fighting". There are three different weapons in Fencing: Foil, Epee and Sabre, the majority of people concentrate on Foil.
Because it is such and enjoyable activity, both mentally and physically, it has a universal appeal, with competitions taking place throughout the UK, including the Isle of Wight.
As the emphasis in Fencing is on skill, rather than speed, it is a safe sport that can be taken up at any age and continued to an any age - by both sexes.
Fencing is also one of the few Olympic sports that have appeared in every Olympic Games and one in which the UK has produced several gold medalists.
