Participants use foils with plastic round tips on the end and are completely protected with special body suits and facemasks. They duel a partner in a designated arena complete with judge and officials.

Competitors score points by making contact with the point of their foil on an opponent’s chest plate or if you force an opponent out of the arena. Apart from the fascinating history of fencing, the sport teaches speed, agility and tactical thinking. It also helps to develop lightning fast reflexes and fitness.
