Fencing, one of the world's oldest sports, has its origins in training for the duel and is one of the very few sports to have been included in every modern Olympics. Modern fencing is actually three separate disciplines, each one using a different weapon: Foil, Epee and Sabre. Electronic scoring apparatus is used and modern safety equipment made from space age materials ensures that the sport is as safe as possible.

But you don't have to be an Olympian to enjoy fencing! Sydney Uni Fencing Club caters to all ages and levels - from nervous beginners and 'social' fencers to would-be world champions.
