Intro Fencing Camp
What is Fencing?
Modern fencing is an Olympic sport with roots in European sword-fighting of centuries past. Today, fencing is a competitive sport of finesse, skill, strategy and endurance. Fencing offers children and teens a positive physical activity, and is often called “physical chess” for its strategic and mental challenges; it's also a ton of fun!
