The Explore Fencing App is a free-to-download, customisable and interactive app that introduces fencing skills through games. The first version has three free games, with plenty more to come.

Are you a beginner, or have you fenced once or twice and want to know more? The 'Explore Fencing' side of the app is for you:

  • Watch top GBR fencers introduce you to the basics and start you off with games to try at home. 
  • Each game has a description, a how-to guide, and a video showing you how to play. 
  • There are top tips, progression ideas, and fun facts to find. 
  • Master the games to develop your appreciation and skill level for fencing. Our favorite game is 'Step Lunge', try it today.

This activity is a great way to engage young people in something different and can be developed easily by introducing swords if you would like or keeping it non-sword based and more structured i.e. create a leaderboard for the Step-Lunge game
