Saber fencing in the Pampa

Rare footage from Latin America…

This rare photograph was purchased in Argentina and shows two young, unidentified men practicing with sabers. The weapons correspond to the military “broadswords” in use from Britain to Germany to the United States at that time.

    Please take a moment to review our High School Fencing Site. High School Fencing is growing in the United States and we feel the time is right to launch a starter site followed by a web site. Also, we welcome feedback.

    The purpose of this site is the advancement of High School Fencing in the United States. Coaches and High School Administrators are invited to post results and commentary. Fencers and Parents are invited post commentary, not results. We have received positive feedback from several college coaches saying they will be checking this site. This shall become a web site during 2009.

    If possible could you give us a link
