ABOUT BEGINNER FENCING CLASSES

Let us introduce you to this fascinating sport of “Physical Chess”! Classes will cover basic footwork, blade-work, tactics, and basic rules of fencing. Fencers will develop coordination, discipline, speed, endurance and balance. By participating in two sessions of classes, students will learn the basic fundamentals of all three weapons. Oh yeah, its a fun sport in an air conditioned facility!

Remember to wear sweat pants, t-shirt and tennis shoes. No shorts or open toed shoes!
