Tuesdays May 21- June 11 4:30-5:15

An introduction to all things fencing for ages 6-9 focused on fun, footwork, coordination, flexibility, strength, games, decision-making, development of strategic thinking. We will use light equipment and methodology especially suited to this age group. No experience is necessary. Young fencers continue in the Jedi class until they are prepared to join the level I/II classes with the older kids (usually between the ages of 8 and 9 and after 3-12 months of fencing). Use of basic equipment and USFA non-competitive membership is included. Pre-registration is required.

Footwork - Ages 11+ Mondays 5:15-5:45

Competition Epee Classes Requires Comp Membership

Advanced Competition Training Mondays 5:45-7:15 ages 12+

Advanced Comp Training is not generally a class format, it is fencer led drills, collaborative coaching, often more footwork. When we teach what we know, we all rise together.

Competition Class Wednesdays 4:15-5:15 Ages 12+

Further skills and tactical drills, conditioning, development of strategy, and preparation for the emotional component of competition. Some younger competitive fencers may also join this class. Comp fencers are encouraged to stay for the level II class and open bouting to have time to fence as well. Wednesday comp class is a transitional class for fencers moving into the comp program.
