King's Swords Fencing Club

We meet on Saturdays during Term Time

Foil, Epee or Sabre?

At King's Swords Fencing Club we train and coach in all three fencing weapons - foil, epee and sabre - and we offer beginner and improver/advanced classes to cater for different ages and skill levels. Explore our Fence with Us section to find out more about the classes we offer, where we fence, as well as our meeting times and dates.

The Foil was used for resolving matters of honour in times gone by, and beginners often start with this weapon. Click here to find out more

The Epee was used for duelling - the fight to first blood! Click here to find out more.

The Sabre was used by the military, particularly the Cavalry and is considered by many to be the most "explosive" of the fencing weapons. Click here to find out more.
