WHAT IS FENCING
Fencing is the sport of swordplay. It began thousands of years ago as a way of training soldiers to fight with swords and eventually became a competitive sport that anyone can participate in. Fencers face off on a 14m x 2m strip with one of three kinds of swords and duel each other not for blood or honor, but points. Fencing is a great example of a sport where you compete on your own, but can also work together as group or team to win a match
