$60 (6 weeks)
Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm, June 7-July 19, 2017 (no class July 5)
Our beginner class for ages 13+ is designed so new fencers can build up some basic skills before practicing with the more experienced group. Beginners learn safety, terminology, rules, and basic actions through games, drills, and practice matches (“bouting” in fencerspeak). In a typical practice, we start with footwork, focusing on balance and coordination, then we put on our gear and work on basic actions, with a focus on mechanics and technique, and we usually finish with practice matches where we try to apply the skills we just worked on.
All equipment is provided. Students should wear comfortable athletic clothes, specifically pants that allow full range of motion (no shorts, jeans not recommended as they’re usually too restrictive) and close-toed shoes.
Registration is closed as of 5/28/17 as we have reached capacity. We will have more beginner classes in September! Thank you for your interest!
