Curiosity : Fencing, of Spanish origin
Fencing would seem to be the only Olympic discipline whose origin is in Spain.
Although there is a possible antecedent in an Egyptian bas-relief from the 12th century B.C. in which a competition with weapons appears, it was not until the 16th century when swordsmanship duels gained momentum.
Fencing was a common practice in countries like England, France or Italy, but it was in Spain where the rapier sword or rapier and the first manuals on the technique appeared.
The oldest treatises date from the 15th century, "La verdadera esgrima" (1472) by J. Pons and "El manejo de las armas de combate" (1473) by P. de la Torre. This led different experts to establish the origin of modern fencing in our country.
The origin of modern fencing is disputed by English, French, Spanish, Italian and even Germans.
