Fencing is an elegant, prestigious and modern combative sport. It has been enjoyed by people around the world since the middle ages and it was one of the first sports to be played in the Olympics. Fencing is a great cardiovascular exercise, using several sets of muscles at a demanding intensity level over an extended period of time.
