What is Fencing?

Fencing is the art, science, and practice of sword-play.  BHFC specializes in Olympic-style fencing, which is the style currently competed in the modern Olympics.  This form focuses on the "sport" of sword-play, so we frequently compare ourselves to other individual physical activities (like tennis, golf, racquetball, etc.).  However, there are many aspects of fencing that make it unique.  Checkout our About Fencing page for more information.
