IN FENCING, WEIGHT & STRENGTH MEAN NOTHING
THE FENCER NEED ONLY KNOW WHEN, HOW AND WHERE HE MUST THRUST HIS BLADE
Fencing has evolved over hundreds of years, from duels in the 17th and 18th centuries to the fast paced and highly athletic combat sport of today.
In a bout, two individuals face off against one another on a 2x14 meter strip. Each attempting to out-manoeuvre and out-think the other in order to score a hit with their weapon.
The modern sport is divided into three weapons, the Epee, Foil and Sabre. All of which are fought to varying degrees within the club.
The Sarnia Sword Club is the oldest fencing club in Guernsey, with a rich history dating back over 50 years.
The Club meets Thursdays at Beau-Sejour leisure centre. The musketeers, aged 8 to 13, meet from 6:30pm under the supervision of our qualified coaches. After which, the senior club meets from 7:30pm till 9:30pm.
