Don’T siT on The fence 30



his summer, the Olympics drew attention to modern fencing. Did you know, however, that the sport has a long tradition in Universities and schools? Though you might think sword-


in academia, it extends as far

back as the 15th Century! In academic fencing, known as Mensur, training is seen as a traditional method of forming character and personality. a result of this is that there is no such thing as a winner or a loser. although we do not fence Mensur here at Brunel, our club encourages the development of all members with elegance and enthusiasm.


Brunel Fencing Club is active, with training sessions twice a week. We’re passionate about our sport and are thrilled to welcome new members this year. as a small group, we are extremely sociable and friendly. Both motivated teams have always performed exceptionally in the league, balancing passion with fairness.

Our dedicated coach trains beginners and experienced fencers alike, with all kit provided. If you’re interested in trying an exciting and unique sport, as well as testing your mental and physical endurance, come and see us – we’d love to meet you!
