This section is dedicated towards the beginning fencer who is either taking the strip for the first time ever. This section was also created keeping the experienced fencer, looking to start their collegiate careers.


This quickstart manual is aimed at being as uesful as possible. Whether you're new and would like some kind of reference as to what you're getting involved with, or you're familiar with fencing and would like some extra tips. This is all information we've found uesful over the years fencing here at IU and would like to pass it on to help your transition to fencing be as smooth as possible. This is by no means a comprehensive guide to fencing. But, we hope this would make it a little easier for you to start a new hobby or perhaps a new passion. There's definitely room to grow at IU.



To the experienced fencer...
