Fencing is a combat sport in which two opponents fight with a foil, epee, or saber. It is a sport of speed, flexibility, coordination, reflexes and tactics. Strength, concentration, a sense of observation, perserverance, and self control are skills essential to fencers. Athletes must have good respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and be able to recover easily, as fencing involves a series of intense exertions. As a general rule, high ranking fencers specialize in a single weapon.
