Fencing is a physical game of strategy that challenges players intellect and skill. Its chess-like nature of planning and execution draws players with quick wit looking for a new way to challenge their thinking. Players score points by hitting or touching their opponent with their weapon. There are three weapons in fencing: foil, saber, or epeé. Players are able to choose any weapon they prefer and often develop a preference as skill is increased. Fencing can be played by all people and it offers a long list of benefits including increased coordination, strategy development, and agility. Fencers often develop tight-knit friendships with fellow players.
