Come learn the exciting sport of fencing with the New England Fencing Alliance! Often called a physical game of chess, fencing develops endurance, coordination, agility, poise, and balance. While fencing is a physical sport, it is also a mental game requiring concentration, quick decision-making and problem-solving. It’s an ideal activity for people of all ages and sizes.
