Fencing is an exciting sport full of action! Fencing requires patience, concentration, discipline and self-awareness. It's rewards are self-confidence, self-control and emotional strength that leads to a healthier lifestyle.
Chandler-Newberger will provide most of the equipment needed for fencing. We have jackets, masks and weapons. We require participants to purchase a glove and underarm protector, as these are personal items. These items should be purchased prior to your first class or camp. They are not available for purchase from the instructor.
Fencers wear the glove on their dominate hand, this is the same hand they use to hold their weapon. The underarm protector is worn under the fencing jacket. A sizing chart for both items is below.
