The Persians and Greeks used fencing for them to practice the skills that they had with small swords. Ancient Egyptians competed in fencing many years ago. Fencing was invented in 1190 B.C.

Today at the modern day Olympics there are many changes from the ancient times. The first change is that in the olden days there were no Olympics in the ancient times. This is also a change it is that there are light that go on when you score a point and a buzzer goes on as well to start and finish the round.

Competing in fencing means that you are fit and determined to do your best. The rules are:that you have to touch them anywhere on there body but this is only with the epee. It's not as easy as it looks you know and the epee is longer and heavier than the foil.
