Competitions are one of the best ways to provide feedback on a fencer’s developmental progress and competition experience. Competitions are also good chance to win medals, prizes, competition ranking points and respect from their peers.
Students of all levels can expect to have fun at fencing competitions and to feel a rush of adrenaline as they do their best to fence their opponents one point at a time. Fencers will fence opponents specific to their own categories as they test their skill, willpower, courage and speed against other opponents.
During competition events, all fencers should display their best sportsmanship, etiquette and respect all referees and opponents. But it is most important to remember the purpose of the game which is to hit and not get hit. Remember to never give up, stay positive, relaxed, and try your best for every match, one point at a time.
