CLASS DESCRIPTION: Our beginner classes are a MUST for anyone getting involved with fencing or coming back to the sport after much time away. Learn to fence Olympic-style on electronic scoring machines! This class will cover the history of the sword, as it relates to fencing, dueling, and the beginnings of the sport. Students will also get an understanding of the weapons, how each one is used, and the modern-day understanding of the rules. From the first lesson and onward through the class, beginners will also acquire an understanding of proper footwork, form, and function. Students will fence each other in the class in the modern Olympic Game style. You don't need to purchase fencing gear, as the use of club gear is provided in the beginner class.
