ECAs: En Garde for Term 2

St Andrews International School Bangkok is working to expand Primary School and High School ECA offerings with a new Term 2 sport activity: fencing.

eca fencing

The fencing courses will be led by a qualified external provider. Before the end of Term 1 we will organise an information session for parents and students interested in learning more about the sport of fencing and the details of the ECA.

Fencing is a sport in which two competitors fight using 'rapier-style' swords, called the foil, the épée, and the sabre; winning points are made through the contact with an opponent. Fencing was one of the first sports to be played in the Olympics. Based on the traditional skills of swordsmanship, the modern sport arose at the end of the 19th century, with the Italian school having modified the historical European martial art of classical fencing, and the French school later refining the Italian system. There are three forms of modern fencing, each uses a different kind of weapon and has different rules, this way the sport itself is divided into three competitive scenes: foil, épée, and sabre. Most competitive fencers choose to specialize in one weapon only.

We would like also to inform you about an upcoming fencing competition in case you and your children are interested in attending:

On 7th and 8th October Thailand will host a Coupe du Monde fencing event, the Sat2017 Men's Foil Junior World Cup, at Fashion Island.
