Fencing is the ability to strike through attacks and defenses at certain points in the fight, by applying intelligence. A fencing duel resembles a fight: it involves maneuvering, scouting and masking, attacking and defending.
There are three types of weapons in modern sport fencing: a dueling sword, an epee and a cutlass. The differences between them lie in the judgment rules and the striking area.
Fencing is considered to be a sport, art, military science and means of education. As a sport, it stands out among others due to its esthetics, romanticism and the wealth of history dating back to the distant millennia.
History of this class at NSU
Trainees of the fencing class have won various competitions: the Universiade, Regional Championships, as well as a variety of Siberian regional and national competitions.

Mountain hiking
The NSU mountain hiking class is not just hiking with tents and ropes. Practical classes include three types of training:
  • Physical (long-distance running and skiing)
  • Technical (work with the equipment: how to hammer in a hook, which knot to use and where to tie it for reliable insurance, how to navigate the steep ice, snow and rocks)
  • Lectures and theory (tactics during mountain hikes, dangers in the mountains, the basics of mountain medicine).
There are six levels of complexity: the first is the easiest with a minimum number of simple passes and the least complex technical challenges; while the maximum sixth level includes all sorts of dangers: rock bastions, endless snow, ice walls and dizzying heights.
These challenges don’t create problems for members of the mountaineering class. In summer 2012 a group of athletes went on a hike of the sixth complexity level climbing the former USSR seven-thousand-meter peak Khan Tengri.
