For all of the intellectual rigor that goes along with fencing, there’s certainly an element of physical rigor that goes along with this sport as well. Though we strongly believe that fencing is one of the safest sports out there (and there’s plenty of research to back that up), we also recognize that every sport has its share of common injuries. That’s because, even though fencing is truly a full body sport, you’re still using some the same parts of the body over and over again as you move and train. Those parts of the body are naturally going to be more prone to injury.
The good news is that the fencer has plenty of resources to help the body stay fit and strong and active throughout the fencing process.
