Cardiff Fencing Club is the Principality's oldest established fencing club. In addition to providing fencing as a social activity, our top fencers have an excellent record of competition success at Commonwealth, British and Welsh levels.

  • Epee – the modern equivalent to the Rapier;
  • Sabre – historically the cutlass or cavalry sword; or

The club is affiliated to Welsh and British Fencing.
