Washington Fencing Academy carries on the tradition of centuries-old sport
The sport of fencing is often associated with a certain aristocratic air, possibly perpetuated by film depictions and the sheer history of the pastime.
To those unfamiliar with the sport, fencing is simply the means by which storied characters such as Zorro, or The Three Musketeers, vanquish their enemies.
Those who are close to the sport understand that it is much more than that. It is a sport of respect, chivalry and craft.
