Neal Mallett scores a perfect foot hit on John Hyde in the semi-final of the Mens Epée

“He learn'd the arts of riding, fencing, gunnery,
And how to scale a fortress or - a nunnery”

Why do people join the NVA? Everyone remarks on the spirit and the atmosphere at the competitions. This comes from our having a common love of fencing and interest in the skill of the sport. Vets have usually given up the regular competitive circuit but the fencing brain is still there as sharp as ever
