This is an age-old question that has troubled many of us, I started fencing when I was about 13 because my high school came to my middle school and showed us how it worked to recruit team members from the incoming freshman class.


This question has appeared on this blog before, and I will give you the same answer I gave then: dead is too late to start fencing.  “Getting anywhere with the sport” is entirely what you make it, honestly, If you eat, breathe, and sleep fencing, then you will improve quickly, if you take moderate interest in it, then you’ll improve moderately.


A lot of serious competitions at the national level are based on age, but I assume you’ll probably start at “open” USFA competitions if you’re a member, and those are separated by skill level!  Sorry this answer got mad long, It’s like 4AM here and I just woke up lmao, but feel free to hit me with any other questions you may have. :)

Y’ALL PLS HELP THESE FOLKS


I was a fencer for the Fairfield High School Fencing team, and these were some of my competitors from Central High School in Bridgeport, CT. 


For years they’ve dealt with the BoE cutting their funding despite the fact that each year, they’ve gotten better and more competitive. In spite of the fact that many of them have to share equipment while fencing (some of it not even being actual fencing equipment but just a cleverly devised alternative), none of them have given up their love for the sport. Throughout my high school years, they’ve only gotten better and more competitive (one of their men’s epeeists got second in state my junior year), and their funding has still been slashed.


This year, their budget is literally zero. No money from the state whatsoever. However, they’re allowed to continue operating if they self-fund, but they need a sum of $7000 in order to do that (which is higher than their budget for last year was).


These friendly, dedicated, and driven young fencers deserve to be able to compete. They have almost 30 people in their club, so it’s obvious there’s interest at their school, and with NO funding, these folks can’t keep doing the sport they love dearly.


PLEASE HELP THE BRIDGEPORT CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL FENCING TEAM TAKE BACK THEIR ABILITY TO COMPETE

Please help these guys! I fenced them when I was in high school too, they deserve recognition for their love of the sport!

10/10 would recommend contact lenses, they are less expensive and much easier to use with fencing masks.

It will literally never smell clean if it is a well-loved and used kit
