    1. What is fencing?
      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 x 40 foot strip. The movement is so fast the touches are scored electronically; more like Star Wars than Errol Flynn.
    2. What is the object of fencing?
      The main object of a fencing bout (what an individual "game" is called) is to effectively score 15 points (in direct elimination play) or 5 points (in preliminary pool play) on your opponent before they score that number on you. Each time a fencer scores a touch, they receive a point.Direct elimination matches consist of three, 3-minute periods.
    3. What type of weapons are used for fencing?
      Foil, epee and sabra are the three weapons used in the sport of fencing.It is unusual for fencers to compete in all three events, they generally choose to develop their skills in one weapon.
