About the Event
Fencing is a competitive battle between two competitors largely based on striking the opponent with a blunt weapon while simultaneously avoiding being hit. Fencing is a modern Olympic sport and despite having historical roots in swordsmanship there are no sharp swords - fencing is one of the safest sports. Success or failure in fencing depends on overcoming the opponent both physically and mentally. Nationwide, the U.S. Fencing Association has seen over a 100% percent increase in membership in the last decade. This rise in popularity is in large part because of the amazing melding in fencing between mind and body to overcome the opponent.
Fencers learn good sportsmanship, self-discipline, develop quick reflexes and insight in how to compete independently. They gain a sense of accomplishment when winning and learn to profit from their defeats. They learn to make complex decisions, analyze patterns in their opponent , and apply their own strategies for success. These ideals help men reach their potential in many areas other than fencing.
