Why Fencing?

This is an Olympic sport hundreds of years in the making, founded upon historical context, and popularized in countless books & movies.  Kids and adults love to fence because it is a challenging game of  "physical chess." In reality, fencing is a complex, dynamic, as well as technical and tactical, multidimensional sport."  The study of fencing yields increased fitness, as well as improved executive functioning, decision-making, and problem-solving skills. Fencing is a sport for life.
