Since the ancient Egyptians first developed fencing as a sport three thousand years ago, athletes have worked to perfect the art of swordplay. Today, fencing is a modern sport that requires strength, agility and mental strategy. One of the five original Olympic sports established in 1896, it is part of a long-established honorable tradition that demands excellence from its athletes.

Walid Mahran, the academy’s coach, directs the training of our diverse group of fencers whose ages range from six to sixty and whose skill level varies from first-time beginners to National Circuit and international athletes.
