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.
In 2019, the Cayman Islands Fencing Federation (CIFF) was recognised by the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee as the official governing body for the sport locally.
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) are offering a FREE first class for those that want to try! If you are interested in picking up a new hobby, learning more about the sport or getting back into fencing then we recommend giving it a try. For your first class, if you don’t have equipment, wear a long workout pants, workout top, tennis shoes and bring a sweatshirt to wear for bouts.
If you are not interested in playing, fencing is also a very exciting spectator sport.
