    Are these correct?

    "Do you want to fence?"
    ¿usted quiere esgrima?

    "Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill."
    la edad avanzada y la traición superarán la juventud y la capacidad.

    Many thanks

    Well done! You have the idea. Just a little suggestions:

    ¿Quiere practicar esgrima? ("usted" is no necessary)
    La edad avanzada y la perfidia (es más abarcativo, implica traición, deslealtad) vencerán a la juventud y a la destreza.

    Hope it helps! and welcome to the forum!
