IAPS FENCING

Did you know that fencing suits are white, because in earlier times, touching was recorded with a piece of cotton at the tip of the weapon dripped in ink! IAPS Fencers are following in the footsteps of President Theodor Roosevelt and Winston Churchill who are both former fencers. Fencing has been included in every Olympic game since 1898.
