Welcome to Mike's fencing page.

Fencing is the art of hitting people with the sharp end of your sword. But fear not, it is also the greatest sport known to man. While it might be a little intimidating at first. Hard to understand because it moves so fast. It is really a very simple sport.
Hit your opponent to score points. Don't let him hit you!

"Fencing is the most physically demanding game in the world and the most intellectually demanding sport in the world."  - Mike!

For beginners and experts alike.
Read the
lessons section of my page for tips on
how to improve your game.

Foil, Epee and Sabre each have their own page with a brief description of how each works and how they are fenced.

Lesson 10 deals with wiring the elctric foil as well as general equipment maintenance.

World Champion
Salle d' Escrime Fencing club
(I say "World Champion" because one night we held a World Championships and only a few teams turned up in time to fence.
We won.)
