‘Physical chess’: New Lynchburg #Fencing Center blends exercise, strategy

Showing up for practice about 20 minutes early last Monday, Robert Vogel picked a long, thin, silver weapon from a display in the One Community Church auditorium on Kemper Street.

He worked his way into the hallway, where he began practicing fencing techniques, seemingly as if he has been participating in the sport for years.

#Fencing Club encourages sport, personal growth

One UT club is giving students a stab at the sport of fencing.

For the past 50 years, the UT Fencing Club has strived to give students the opportunity to learn an unconventional sport and travel and compete throughout the Southeast.

Founded in 1967 by Kamillo Szathmary, a Romanian sabreur for the 1936 Olympics, the sport gave students a different way to get better in shape and is still active today, maintaining its status as one of the longest RecSport clubs on campus.

En Garde – #Fencing for Fun, Exercise and Knowledge

In the seventh grade at Hudtloff Junior High School I signed up for an evening course in fencing. I had always loved stories of The Three Musketeers, pirates and duels of honor. I thought fencing would be fun. No one told me that it was a lot of work.

All you need to start with is a weapon. I bought mine at a sports shop in Villa Plaza. The sport faces off with two competitors fighting with “rapier-style” swords. Fencing recognizes three fencing blades: the foil, the epee, and the sabre. The foil has a rectangular blade. The epee has a triangular blade (this was the sword of duels). The sabre has a round shaped blade. A rapier sword is designed to skewer rather than hack. Beginners start off with the foil. You purchase your own. The foil with its rectangular blade give you the slight bend that you see in the sport of fencing.
