Why Fencing?

Teaching children to fence can:

  • channel their physicality into sport 
  • promote confidence, self discipline, self assurance and responsibility
  • help them learn good sportsmanship
  • provide a fun way to stay or get fit
  • appeal to their sense of play
  • develop co-ordination, speed, agility and strength
  • provide a positive interaction with other children and adults
  • help them learn to compete individually as well as for a team

Teaching children to fence also has mental health benefits:

  • can help relieve stress and be a great way to let off steam and frustration 
  • help develop powers of observation and understanding of strategy 
  • help develop judgment and deduction to anticipate their opponent's actions 
  • help develop problem solving skills
