Raffles Institution

Fencing (Year 5-6)

  • taken by Chiow Hui Min and Matthew Toh for Deck the Walls 2017, a project by the Raffles Photographic Society (Year 5-6)

    Fencing is fun. The satisfaction that envelopes you when stabbing another human being is one that is weirdly thrilling and of course, unique to fencing. I mean, you could choose to stab people in other situations, though you’ll probably get arrested. Jokes aside, fencing gives you the opportunity to practice a weapon-based combat sport without the annoying threats of blood and death. Whether just an extension of the arm or a full-blown lunge, the feeling when your side of the scoreboard lights up, coupled with the cheering of your supportive CCA mates, is simply indescribable.

    Besides trainings on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and physical training sessions, our CCA often goes out, having post-training dinners at Junction 8, and even exploring Sentosa and Botanic Gardens together. We are a happy and bonded lot where no member is excluded and no fencer ignored!
