Fencing is an Olympic game and it is growing in popularity in Delhi/NCR and School kids, if trained well, can qualify for these games at national and international levels. Sword fencing participation and medals can also help kids in admissions in international colleges to higher their studies.
The game is not just for school kids but it can be pursued as a sports hobby by professionals. The game helps fencers build accuracy, reflex ability and agility, balancing, precision, target achieving along with physical strength. If professionals are planning to further their studies, sword fencing participation certificates add a great strength to applications for admission to international colleges.
It is perceived to be a dangerous sport for children as fencers deal with swords but this great Olympic sport is very safe. Children can start learning as young as 8 years old; sword fencing weapons are not sharp edged that it could cut or harm anybody. The uniform includes proper safety equipment that include jacket, mask (head visor), gloves and shoes.

He is being helped by team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable fencers in organising this camp.
Pratibha Rana, fencing coach at Pegasus Royal Fencing Club said “Sword Fencing is one of the oldest and famous Olympic Games and it hasn’t picked up on popularity in India. Our purpose at Pegasus Royal Fencing Club is to help Kids and Professional equally train in Sword Fencing as well as be fit in James Bond style. When we try to explain what sword fencing is all about to kids and their parents, first thing that comes to their mind is James Bond in white dress with a sword. They immediately get excited to explore this sport further but at the same worried about the safety. But fencing as an Olympic games provide plenty of safety instruments and so do we.”
