Welcome to the official on-line home of the South African Amateur Fencing Association (SAAFA). Here you will find information about the sport of fencing in South Africa. We are very proud of our fencers (who are all amateurs) and who competes both locally and internationally.
South African fencers have competed in the Beijing and Athens Olympic Games as well as World Championships on junior, senior and veteran level. We even have a veteran world champion! South African fencers also compete in Commonwealth fencing championships as well as African fencing championships. There is a national ranking competition series where fencers of all provinces and all ages compete.
