About Fencing


Fencing is a unique sport that requires use of both the body and mind.  It is often called "physical chess" due to the complexity of the sport.  There are three distinct weapons in Fencing: Saber, Epee and Foil.  Metro Chicago Fencing Center offers instruction in Saber and Epee.  Fencing is friendly to all ages and ability levels.  A fencer can begin to learn and enjoy the sport at the age of 4 and continue their entire lives.  Competitive fencing begins with a 10 and Under category and continues through to a 60 and Over Veterans category.
