What is Fencing? Come and Feel the Passion, Romance and Drama!!!
Fencing is the activity of fighting with blades. The most common version of fencing today, also called olympic fencing or competitive fencing, is divided into three weapon categories: foil, saber and epee. Classical fencing uses the same three weapons, but approaches fencing as a martial art.
