As you progress through the Adult Fencing curriculum you will start to work and engage in higher level games and drills, increasing your skills and confidence. The Adult Fencing Program meets once a week on Thursdays, 7:00-8:00pm, unless otherwise noted on our calendar. See our calendar on Info for Members page.
Each class includes an array of activities that develop strength, flexibility, and speed as well as technical and tactical exercises that will accelerate your fencing development. If you are interested, the curriculum begins to incorporate necessary competition skills and you will start electrically scored bouting.
At this point you are ready to purchase your own fencing gear: Mask, Jacket, Chest and Underarm Protector, Electric Epee, Glove and Body Cord. Fencers can be sized and equipment ordered prior to starting the Adult Fencing program.
