Called a western martial art by some, fencing calls for concentration, craftiness and an economy of hand and arm movements. Fencing, for recreation or competition, is an active sport that develops physical fitness, quick reactions, speed, excellent hand, body and feet co-ordination. At the highest level, it demands total concentration to develop analytical minds and the tactical awareness to execute combat. To some, fencing has been described as “physical chess” at lightning speed.

Fencing in RI is available in all the 3 weapon groups – Epee, Sabre and Foil. Every year, we compete in several competitions such as Novices on top of the National School Games which we have always done well. Annually, we organized a local competition that has 200 over competitors from many different schools and levels. In the CCA, we have a mix of experienced and inexperienced fencers, all coming together to enjoy the sport.
