Fencing is one of the original sports in modern Olympics. It is also an NCAA sport with scholarships available to many universities. The uniqueness of the sport of fencing is in the fact that it is the safest among all the other martial art sports since it requires absolutely no body contact. All points are scored by the tip of a flexible foil, contrary to hands or legs as used in the rest of the martial art sports
