Single Stick Fencing

Single Stick Fencing uses wooden sticks with guards instead of steel swords, and was popular as a sport in the British Commonwealth and the US from the late 18th century through the early 20th century.

Here is a history of Single Stick Fencing.

Men, women, and kids of all ages compete for medals in Single Stick at the Wisconsin Highland Games. Saturday is adults and Sunday is kids.
