Youth Fencing (Fall)

Students of the Beginner and Intermediate program will be introduced to the foundations of fencing at an easy pace


What will the students learn in this class?
Students of the Beginner and Intermediate program will be introduced to the foundations of fencing at an easy pace. The program nurtures the fun of the sport, and instills values to succeed in fencing, as well as in life. Beginner fencers can continue fencing at recreational and school level.

The Advanced program enables teens to learn a new sport and get a good mental and physical workout. It focuses on fundamentals (control of the body and sword, distance, footwork and timing) while catering to fencers who wish to perform at the highest level.

What are the benefits of this class?
Fencing is a sport that requires both intelligence and physical agility. It helps develop strategic thinking, quick decision-making and strong mental focus, all of which are required to outwit an opponent.

Our training system provides a clear development pathway for all our class members. It is a major reason for our fencers’ success and our recognition worldwide.

Who will teach this class?
