What Is Classical Fencing?

Classical fencing is a Western martial art that focuses on the practical application of the sword and its use in preparation for self-defense and personal combat. It differs from modern fencing in which the martial aspects of the weapon have been largely forgotten.

As a student of classical fencing, you will learn to use a sword as it was used in the 19th century when fencing was practiced as an art and science, as preparation for a duel, and as a recreational activity.

While the focus is on realism, all modern safety precautions are used; weapons are blunt and students wear protective gear (glove, jacket, and mask). Classical fencing stresses control, both of yourself and of your weapon, and it is this focus on self-discipline and awareness which makes it similar to Eastern martial arts.
