Welcome to Dacorum Fencing Club

from complete beginner to advanced level.

Our adult training is  in our home  :  Hemel Hempstead Sports Centre

The three types of blade are the     foil,  the  epee     and the  sabre.

The foil being the first most fencers learn as it is the lightest and most flexible. From the that you can carry on with the foil or move to the epee, which is a heavier than the foil but still designed for a similar thrusting motion. The Sabre is more designed for slicing and thrusting motions. Fencing also requires you to wear protective gear, consisting of a metal mesh mask, a heavy jacket, a plastron, a glove with a gauntlet on the sword hand, and breeches.

 If you are  fencing at another club then please  join us for extra fencing or we can arrange a friendly match with your club.
