Fencing Benefits


  • Fencing strengthens coordination, agility, balance, flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular endurance.1 Such traits are desirable in optimal athletes and fencing is able to provide those. 
    Anaerobic/Aerobic Workout: Explosive start/stop sport where periods of high-energy activity are interspersed by periods of low-energy (a recovery period). It is also an aerobic form of exercise so it supports heart and mental health by increasing oxygen in the blood and releasing endorphins that lead to a positive sense of health. The extra oxygen released in the blood improves circulation, boosts the immune system and enhances the body’s ability to rid itself of toxins1.”
    Whole-Body Workout: Unlike some sports, fencing requires usage of the entire body which allows for maximum overall fitness.


  • Improves Cognitive Capability: Fencing is often the “physical chess,” and for due reason. It leads to improved focus, problem solving and stress reduction. You also benefit from fencing by gaining greater mental agility.
  • Stress Reduction: Because it is both a physical and mental sport, it is extremely stress reducing.
  • Emotional Endurance: As with any other sport, loss is experienced, and fencing encourages athletes to engage and cope with their emotions. It teaches a person to control their emotions, boost self-confidence, and encourages the spirit of healthy rivalry and competition.
