A common question from parents in regards to fencing is whether the size of their child matters. This is one question with a quick answer: It doesn’t.
It does not matter if a child, or even an adult, fencer is much shorter or much taller than their opponent. The nature of fencing is such that you can be successful whether you are small in stature or whether you are large in stature. There are advantages and disadvantages to either one, and they are evenly split. No matter your level.
Size doesn’t matter!
