Although fencing has been around for quite some time, it has recently been introduced in Cayman by the Cayman Islands Fencing Federation (CIFF), which is the governing body for Olympic Fencing in the Cayman Islands.
Fencing is a safe non-contact sport that is open to all ages (8+), genders and abilities and they encourage the whole family to give it a try.
The CIFF teaches women’s épée, men’s foil, and the sabre. Group training is also available. Winning points are made through the weapon’s contact with an opponent. Classes are offered after work or school hours and weekends.
The Cayman Islands Fencing Federation (CIFF) is recognised as the official Olympic Fencing Team of the Cayman Islands. The sport was recently brought to Cayman in 2019 by interested residents. The CIFF is prepared to engage the community, and trains budding students or active adults throughout the week. Visit www.fencing.ky for more information or to sign up.
If you are not interested in playing, fencing is also a very exciting spectator sport.
