Why Fencing?

Fencing is a sport that helps develop:

  • balance, co-ordination, agility and core strength
  • physical fitness and well-being
  • mental agility, learning to develop strategies and analyze tactical situations
  • great hand-eye co-ordination and reflexes
  • focus and concentration
  • self-reliance

Fencing is a sport that can be enjoyed at all levels, ages and abilities. The aim of IFA coaches is to challenge the fencer at their level and ability to reach the next level whatever that maybe. This is the core of IFA’s philosophy to “raise the champion within” and enables the fencer to develop their skills and to constantly challenge themselves to reach new levels.  If the fencer’s personal goal is to be able to gain strength and agility and have fun or whether it is to be the next olympic champion, IFA can help you reach those goals.
