Our Mission Statement

To provide a fun, friendly and safe environment for fencers of all ages and abilities to receive high quality fencing coaching, and to be able to engage in competitions and other fencing activities.

Three Weapons

Modern fencing is based around three specific swords – the foil, the epee and the sabre.

Each of the swords is designed with safety in mind – there are no sharp points or edges.

These are the swords used in every modern Olympics, since the first appearance of the foil in the 1896 Athens Olympics.

Foil

Foil

The foil is the most recognisable sword in fencing. It is often the first sword that fencers encounter, and is a light flexible weapon.

Epee

Epee

The Epee is the heaviest of the weapons in modern fencing and is based on the rapier. The epee has a larger hand-guard and a heavier, fluted-edged blade.

Sabre

Sabre

The sabre is a light weapon, which many people think of as the swashbuckling weapon, based on the cavalry sabre.
