Olympic sport since 1896

Introduction to the activity

Fencing is a complete sport that combines physic and mental skills. In fact many champions reach their best results around their thirties, whereas athletes in other sports reach their pensionable age.

In the physical area you will work on strength, speed, flexibility, coordination, power and balance.

On the mental area you will work the abilities to get focussed, problem solving, tactical analysis, creativity and respect

Fencing is a safe environment. Sport values include respect for colleagues and yourself, for the rules and the referee, even for the equipment. Fencing is a combat sport, but contact is forbidden. Stringent equipment regulations make it one of the safest sports. All these values and abilities can be practiced in a formal and ludic environment where each participant tries to touch the opponent without being touched.
