Fencing is a simple, exciting sport; fun and cheap to start and maintain both your body and brain active! With 3 different weapons and a range of fun behavior using foam and plastic swords, there is something for everyone and every age. For a bit of an introduction to the sport of Fencing, the three weapon used in sport of fencing are Foil, épée and sabre in the. While it is not extraordinary for fencers to battle in all three events, they commonly choose to build up their skills in one weapon. Until recently, women were permitted to struggle only in foil, but now the USFA & FIE offer national competitions for women in épée and sabre. The main objective of a fencing bout is to successfully score 15 points (in direct elimination play) or five points (in preliminary pool play) on your opponent before he scores that number on you. Each time a fencer scores a touch, he/she receives a point. Direct elimination matches consist of three three-minute periods.
