Fencing Equipment



Fencing Equipment



When most people think of fencing, they think of swashbuckling battles mixing poise, skill, and the grace of a dancer. We don’t usually think of the rapid, subtle movements of the fast paced fencing of today’s sports world. In fact, the action is so fast that opponents must wear protective equipment that doubles as electric scoring equipment.

Modern fencing equipment is divided into two types: protective and weapons. The weapons consist of: a foil, which is like a modern day rapier; epee, which is reminiscent of a dueling sword; and an updated version of a cavalry sword called a sabre.

The protective equipment is the same no matter the weapon used:

• White Jacket – The official fencing jacket is a long-sleeved, padded white jacket. It is tight fitting and has a high collar and fastens on the side opposite of the fencing hand. It is usually long enough to cover the groin area.
• Underarm Protector – A padded underarm protector is worn under the jacket on the arm holding the weapon.
• Gloves - The white gloves cover half the forearm and have extra padding on the back of the weapon hand.
• Mask – The wire mesh mask protects the head and face. It has a padded bib to cover the neck, and it will withstand 25 pounds of force.
• Pants – The white pants can either be ankle length or above the calf and work with white socks.
• Shoes – Fencing shoes offer extra support to the inside of the soles. For competitive purposes, they are optional.

Fencing equipment can be bought at any one of a number of specialty shops. Blade, Blue Gauntlet, and Santelli Fencing are three of the most popular. Fencing equipment can be expensive, so if you are just starting out or on a budget, look to buy used.
