Project Description

Fencing is the physical conditioning of gymnastics with the grace of ballet and the mental agility of chess combined in a sport far more complex and nuanced than you might think from watching The Three Musketeers. There is so much more to fencing than a mere clash of blades. From finding the blind spots in your opponent’s bladework to executing tactics learnt during training, fencing requires both physical prowess and the mental resilience to overcome the challenges on the piste (the flooring used in fencing).
