In fencing, is it an advantage to be left handed?

It can be, when dealing with those that don't have a lot of experience since their being used dealing with righthanded opponents will leave them open for attacks that could normally be contered if coming from a right-handed opponent. It is not an easy adjustment for most to make. Thats why I learned to fence with BOTH hands, it come in handy to throw off opponents.

If you are facing a right handed opponent than yes. because you are in a better position to score on his torso. But he will be in a better position to score on you as well. But if most of the training partners your opponent has are right handed he will probably feel awkward facing a south paw.
