Fencing is part of the Olympic Sport Programme since the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896. It is a very popular sport worldwide. Speed and agility are the two key features of the sport.

Two competitors fight swords or weapons called the FOIL, EPEE and SABRE on a six-feet by forty feet aluminum piste. Points are made through contact/ touch with an opponent, which is recorded electronically. The target area of contact/ touch is different for each weapon. There are both INDIVIDUAL and TEAM competitions and a team comprises of four fencers.

The main object of a fencing bout (what an individual "GAME" is called) is to effectively score five points (in preliminary pool play) or 15 points (in direct elimination play) on your opponent before he/she scores that number on you. Each time a fencer scores a touch, he/ she receives a point. The preliminary pool matches consist of three minutes and direct elimination matches consist of three three-minute periods.
