FAQ Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. We take safety very seriously. While the sport originated from honor duels to the death, we have moved very far away from that. Our weapons are not sharp, and the tips are designed to register a score on a machine, not to puncture an opponent. All fencers must wear a fencing mask designed to protect the head and face from injury. Women fencers wear a plastic chest protector beneath their fencing jacket. The jackets themselves are designed to withstand punctures.
Not really. That is stage combat. Every move is carefully choreographed and rehearsed. It looks wonderful on the screen, but it isn’t how people fought in the past, and it isn’t how fencing works now. Though there are days we wish we had a chandelier to swing from, just because it would be cool.

Fencing is a sport. Born in the days of blood combat, it is now a sport with rules, scoring methods, and special equipment. The sport of fencing is fast and athletic, a far cry from the choreographed bouts you see on film or on the stage. Instead of swinging from a chandelier or leaping from balconies, you will see two fencers performing an intense dance on a 6-feet by 44-feet strip. The movement is so fast the touches are scored electrically—a lot more like Star Wars than Errol Flynn.
