Fencing traces back to 1190 BC

Timeline of Fencing The first traces of fencing were supposedly in the age of the Pharaos in Egypt, four centuries before it was used in Olympus by the Greeks. The Pharaos originally used long metal sticks with bronze plates to fight against the Libyans in battle. After the Greeks, fencing was used for honour as seen in jousting in England. It was not until 1896 when fencing was introduced into the Olympics that it became a recongnized and competitive sport.
