Fencing Central aims to develop successful, competitive, strong-minded and confident fencers. These fencers should be capable of competing initially at regional and national levels and then to international levels; realistically providing podium finishes.
We want to give committed fencers an opportunity to train and excel together in a structured program and in key competitions. Using the Annual Fencing calendar and with planned training camps this will cover; technique, strategy, tactics, mental skills, fitness, strength training, footwork and nutrition.
We will be asking for applications from interested fencers to join these squads in the attached form. Interested athletes will be invited to a training session weekend on the 28th of January. Please consult your coaches and parents before applying.

Digging through our electronic archives uncovered a fascinating piece of New Zealand fencing history. We found 10 scanned copies of "Piste", the NZ Amateur Fencing Association Inc magazine dating from April 1959 to Spring 1963. The set is incomplete but does give an insight to fencing at that time and how many of the problems faced then (money, membership, exposure) still remain to this day.
Articles on Australian tours, the introduction of electric fencing, Olympic teams, Commonwealth teams, general news from around NZ and elsewhere make these magazines interesting reading for any fencer. Here they are:
