Fencing is the activity of fighting with blades. The most common version of fencing today, also called olympic fencing or competitive fencing, is divided into three weapon categories: foil, sabre and épée. Classical fencing uses the same three weapons, but approaches fencing as a martial art.

Competitive fencing is one of five activities which has been featured at every one of the modern Olympic Games, the other four being Athletics, Cycling,Swimming, and Gymnastics.
