Fencing
Fencing is a sport where the athletes are armed and utilise the skill of cutting , stabbing and deflecting using a set weapon.

Fencing tends to refer specifically to European schools of swordsmanship and to the modern Olympic sport that has evolved out of them which has Spanish origins.

The three types of weapon are used in Olympic fencing: Foil which uses a light thrusting weapon; the valid target is restricted to the torso, Epée which uses a heavy thrusting weapon; the valid target is the entire body and Sabre which uses a light cutting and thrusting weapon; the valid target area includes almost everything above the waist.

Fencing has historic ties and was incorporated into the Asian Games in 1974.
