BENEFITS OF FENCING .
Develops Hand-Eye Coordination
Hand and eye coordination is good for multiple sports, especially fencing. At Elite, our drills are designed to enhance and improve the fencer’s ability to unite their visual and motor skills.
Training at Elite is designed to increase a fencer’s ability to practice self- control and time management on and off the strip.
Increases Agility & Flexibility
Fencing forces the arms and legs to work together in a harmonious fashion as they attack, defend and counter-attack. Coordination makes all these moves smoother and more efficient during a bout. At Elite, training is specific to balance, coordination and alertness giving fencers the ability to adapt in situational bouting.
Fencing provides a healthy environment for competition, rivalry, and sportsmanship, as well as learning the lesson of losing and winning.
College Recruiting & Scholarships
NCAA and college fencing clubs recruit elite fencing athletes. Fencers are typically considered well rounded students and often receive academic and sports scholarships.
Expands Social Circle
Fencing broadens an athlete’s cultural awareness and experience.
