BIRTH OF THE SPORT
Fencing began the move from a form of military training to a sport in either the 14th or 15th century. Both Italy and Germany lay claim to its origins, with German fencing masters organising the first guilds in the 15th century, the most notable being the Marxbruder of Frankfurt, formed in 1478.
There are three weapons used in fencing: Epée, Foil and Saber.
The Qatar Fencing Federation was established on 20 December, 2000 fulfilling the demand to include the Olympic Sport of Fencing in the State of Qatar.
