Fencing is the only combat sport with no weight classes. It is an evolved form of ancient fighting still conducted on a 14m by 2m strip that replicates combat in a castle hallway. Fencing is exciting, graceful, dexterous and fast. The tip of the weapon is the second-fastest moving object in sport (after the marksman’s bullet). Fencers are modern athletes who still honour and defend ancient rules of chivalry.
