We are the ASU fencing team, a traveling team that goes to California 3 times a school year to compete with about 7 schools (UCSD, UCLA, UCI, UC, USC, PCC, and Pomona) and we usually do pretty well. We have some local tournaments too and we are working on getting more. We are amongst the cheapest club to join and we offer free lessons for two weeks for every new member. We provide gear to outfit you so you don't need to purchase anything to get started. We primarily meet Tuesday and Thursday in the green gym at (M/W 5:30-7:30, Tu/Th 8-11). Occasionally we will have Monday and Wednesday practices and conditioning for competitive members. There is no pressure to travel and compete, so all skill levels are welcome!
So Fencing is all about out thinking your opponent. Even if you've out planned them you still need to outmaneuver them. Fencing is both mentally and physically demanding. We wear cloth armor and in two of the styles, we wear an additional piece of conductive material fabric. The mask protects the head and face. There are three styles of weapon in fencing:Epee, Foil, and Saber. Each weapon has a different set of rules.
That's the rundown, take a flyer, remember to come to practice, bring a friend or an enemy, it's crazy fun and personal favorite sport.
