Fencing, with its storied past, has throughout its history been crafted by the expert hands of Spanish, French and Italian swordsmen – resulting in a thrilling, complex and elegant sport with three different disciplines (or sword types):  Epée, Foil and Saber. Fencing is one of the handful of sports that has been in every single modern Olympic Games, and here in South Africa it continues to grow.

The Wits fencing club has been contributing formidable athletes to the pool of South African fencers for 85 years, making it one of the oldest sports clubs at Wits.

Regardless of what you’re looking for in a sport – poise, aggression, style, fun, a few bruises here and there – fencing has it all.
