Fencing, anyone?

The sport of fencing is a uniquely classic sport. It has a history, drama, romance, style, art, plus all of the advantages of an active physically demanding sport. Mentally it is mind consuming, allowing not a moment’s break. A far cry from the choreographed bouts portrayed on film, the sport of fencing is dynamic, fast and athletic.

There are many benefits to participating in fencing whether as a youth or as an adult. At any age, fencing teaches good sportsmanship and self-discipline. Fencers learn to compete independently as well as for a team; they learn to enjoy winning and to learn from defeats, while becoming physically fit and healthy; and, most importantly, they learn to make complex decisions, analyze problems, and think fast. These ideals help fencers reach their potential in many areas other than fencing.

At Delta Fencing Center, we believe in...

Fencing philosophy

The time spent discussing and searching for the ideal grip is a manifestation of the fencer's enthusiasm for the sport. Nevertheless, in most cases it would be better spent practicing technique with whatever grip is available. - Imre Vass, "Epee Fencing: a complete system"
