Fencing is a unique and classical sport that originated from Europe. It incorporates analysis of speed, strength, tactics and psychological control in one single match. Apart from that, it also trains one’s ability to observe and make instantaneous reactions. There are three weapons used in fencing, namely Foil, Epee and Sabre. Each weapon has different rules and targets, and each of them requires different strategies and technique. However, all three weapons are equally interesting and challenging to play.
