The products on this page are shortlisted for new fencers. So what items are required to begin fencing training? You will need one of each:
- long socks,
- electric weapon (epee, foil or sabre),
- body wire,
chest protector (a must for ladies),
men's protector (strongly advised),
electric jacket for foil or sabre (we call it "lame"),
- blade cover / fencing bag,
fencing shoes (recommended).
*be careful when purchasing weapons, glove, fencing suit and underplastron as it can be left or right handed.
Remember to check local competition rules in your country when you start competing as there might be special equipment requirements in place. For example, to compete in local competitions in Singapore a fencer is required to have two weapons, two body wires, a minimum label of 350N for fencing jacket / pants / mask and a label of 800N for underplastron. Furthermore, U10 and U12 local events in Singapore require blades of size 3 or below.
