New Mexico Fencing Foundation
New Mexico Fencing Foundation is dedicated to promote and teach the sport of modern Olympic fencing.
Modern Olympic fencing is a great physical activity for all ages. Fencing is art as well as sport with a rich historical background and tradition. Olympic fencing has three weapons including foil, epee and saber. NMFF introduces all fencers with the foil, which is a 36" rectangular blade with a blunt tip. After mastering the basic techniques and rules of foil fencers are allowed to learn epee. An Epee is a direct descendant of the rapier with a 36" triangular blade and considerable more weight. The rules are simplified to "hit first without getting hit".
Electronic scoring eliminates manual judging and speeds up the process for more activity and less debating.
