The Silversword Fencing Academy was established in 2002 with the primary objective of teaching people the art of fencing. The academy has since produced many state and national representatives. Fencing is considered a western martial art and it equally demands physical and mental discipline and agility. Silversword promotes positive character building in young adults, teaching its students to be brave-hearted, have respect, confidence and to be good sportsman. The Silversword Fencing Academy trains athletes from beginners through to national and international champions and will continue to do so with the help of its amazing coaches, the support of the parents and the wider community.
