Kerala Fencing has the rich history of producing many fencers that have represented India in international Championships. Our fencers have won medals for the country in Commonwealth Championships & Asian Junior-Cadet Championships.
Although an Olympic Sport, fencing is still not recognized as a 'Priority' sport by the Union Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports. Hence, fencers don't receive any funding from the Ministry while representing the country. SAI occasionally provides funding for fencers of SAI center and KSSC for the other Kerala fencers. In some instances fencers rely fully on personal funding while representing India in international championships.
