  1. No it's not. The goal of fencing is to score points. It is an elegant game of timing, strategy and point control. Yes, a sword could kill someone, and people have died before, but the aim of the sport is to make your box light up when you have the priority. In real life 'priority' wouldn't matter one bit – you'd be dead either way.

    I am a foil fencer who's done it for over 10 years, so I do know what I'm talking about.

  2. been fencing for 7 years and boxing for 6, they definitely both are combat sports
    it's just different classes of combat
    mentality is still more or less the same

  3. Anyone who says fencing is not physically demanding probably hasn't tried it before or is just very physically fit. Even when I was running 10 miles a day and doing 200 situps and pushups and staying active you could find me sweating profusely just by dumping me in the fencing room for 15 minutes.

  4. Recommendation: Harrison Gill, Squash player number 1 in the U.S and top 10 in World (Not sure which one) 14 years old.

  5. Don't be fooled by the protective gear, the goal of this "sport" is to kill your opponent. The best you can do in MMA or boxing is knock someone out. Without the mask and tips, this is pure man to man combat ending in death. He would kill an MMA fighter in a heartbeat.
