WELCOME TO SOUTHWEST FLORIDA FENCING ACADEMY

Fence with courage, win with honor, lose with dignity. This is our creed.

Coach Charlie describes fencing as a game of strategies and tactics -- a cerebral sport. 

"It is a chess match moving at 90 miles an hour", says Coach Charlie. "Somebody is standing in front of you with a long pointy piece of steel they are trying to drive into your body. You have to stop them. At the same time, you are trying to inflict the same exact move on them."

CHOOSING A WEAPON

Fencing has developed into a competitive sport and is one of four sports which have been featured at every one of the modern Olympic Games. The sport of fencing is divided into three weapons:

  • Foil —a light thrusting weapon that targets the torso, including the back, but not the arms.
  • Épée —a heavier thrusting weapon that targets the entire body.
  • Sabre —a light cutting and thrusting weapon that targets the entire body above the waist, excluding the hands.

Not sure which weapon is right for you?  Watch our video and it may help you decide.
