KANATA Fencing Socks

We’re thinking of getting Kanata Team fencing socks. They would be fabricated in Kanata ‘blue’ with the word ‘KANATA’ written vertically down the outside of each sock (in white lettering). At the bottom would be 3-crossed fencing weapons (as in the photograph).

 Fencing Socks


  • Made of polypropylene.
  • Polypropylene wicks the moisture away from the body.
  • The socks stay up on the leg and contain 10% elastic thread.
  • Bottom of foot cushioned
  • Ribbing in arch and ankle for added support
  • Fold down cuff


  • Youth: younger children
  • Intermediate: ladies shoe size 5-10 / men’s shoe size 4½-8
  • Adult: ladies shoe size 10-12 / men’s shoe size 8-12
  • XL: above size 12  

We can only place the order when we have 12-pairs of a single size. We expect the cost to be $15 - $20, dependent upon how many pairs we order. If you’re interested, let Coach Jon know how many pairs and what size. Once we have a tally, we’ll let you know what the final cost will be before we order.

In Kingston the K-Town Challenge was held at the Kingston Fencing Club. Vadim Reznikov made the trip and was rewarded with a Silver medal in Veteran sabre and a Bronze medal in Veteran foil!

In Montreal there was the first AAA tournament of the year and Daniel Manyoki earned a Bronze medal against a very tough field in foil! In the Veteran's category an unfortunate circumstance pitted Antony Roberts against Bob Rennick in the direct elimination, meaning that only one of our fencers would advance to the medal round. It was a very close match that saw Antony defeat Bob 10-9! Antony went on to with the Silver medal!

 Congratulations to all our fencers! Well done!

RMC 2013-14

Kanata Fencing sent teams to compete in all weapons at this seasons RMC Invitational Tournament. All teams faired quite well given the high-level of competition. 

Special mention has to be made of Epee fencer Dawson Bennett, Foilist Daniel Manyoki and Sabreur Kuzey Gunesli. Each of these fencers performed extremely well adding exceptional value to their respective teams. Bravo!

The Epee team was led by Coach Jon with Dawson and Antony Roberts.

Foil consisted of Coach Jon, Fernando Cuervo, Vadim Reznikov and Daniel.

We had two sabre teams. 'A' was again led by Coach Jon, Fernando and Kuzey. 'B' was led by Coach Bob, Pat McArthur, Vadim and Antony.

Final finishing order will be placed here as soon as we receive the results.
