FAQs

Who can join?
You! MFS was created to help introduce fencing to the public and dispel the myth of it being an “elitist” sport. Young and old, from getting a workout to becoming a champion, MFS caters to everyone.

Will I be the only beginner?
Absolutely Not! MFS fencers have a diverse range of skill level, from top Canadian fencers to first timers. You will be part of a club which pays attention to skill level, and helps you develop at your own pace.

Why should I learn to fence?
To build character! To become physically fit! To entertain and be entertained!

Do I need any special equipment?
To begin with, you will only need comfortable soft-soled shoes and stretchy/sports pants that cover your entire leg. Eventually, more specialized equipment will be needed and our instructors will help you in selecting the right equipment for you.
It is preferable to bring your own water bottle (no pop or other drinks by Bonsor policy in the gym & studio) and a towel for your sweat. There are water fountains at Bonsor or vending machine if you do not bring a bottle.
