Polycarbonate masks with stainless steel mesh visors in bright colours offer protection to the face, eyes and neck. Plastic swords share most of the characteristics of metal weapons but weigh only 100g and are more flexible to ensure hits don’t hurt. All equipment is tested to CEN standards. The fencers should wear long-sleeved t-shirts or sweatshirts and tracksuit trousers. No additional safety kit is required for plastic fencing.
When using metal fencing equipment you will be experiencing the Sport as seen at the Olympics. All the equipment has been CEN tested and totally safe. Of course like any marshal art / Combat Sport will get the odd burse. Their are more injuries in badminton than their are in Fencing.
