Have You Thought About Trying Fencing?

How much do you know about the sport of fencing? Fencing is a group of three related combat sports.  The three disciplines in modern fencing are the foil, the epee, and the sabre.  Winning points are made through the weapons contact with an opponent. Each discipline uses a different kind of weapon and has different rules.  Most competitive fencers choose to specialize in one weapon only.  Competitive fencing is one of the five activities which have been featured in every modern Olympic Games. "Hikurangi Fencing Club Invites You To Come Along and Learn the Art of Fencing"
