FAQs

Is fencing safe?

The days of bloody duels are thankfully over. Todays fencing is very safe, despite the swordplay. There is approximately a 2.5% injury rate for Olympic fencers, slightly higher than synchronized swimming. Rates are higher for students and youth, with injuries most often occurring in the ankles and knees. Our club works to provide a safe environment with a wooden fencing surface, full-body conditioning, and SafeSport certified staff.
