Building fencers, changing lives
Commonly called 'physical chess', fencing is a sport of finesse and strategy that requires a strong combination of mind and body. Fencers develop muscle strength, flexibility, balance and coordination while they gain analytical skills and quick reflexes. Confidence grows as fencers realize that size doesn't necessarily matter, but skill certainly does!
Fencing is a fast-paced sport that is one of only four sports that has been in every modern Olympics since 1896. It's never too late to start fencing. Come get some exercise and be a part of this amazing tradition!
