Adult Fencing


As you progress through the Adult Fencing curriculum and practices you will start to work at various skill levels, engage in higher level games and drills to increase your skill and confidence while continuing to refine foot and blade work. The Adult Fencing Program meets once a week on Tuesdays, 6:10-8:00pm. Each class includes an array of activities that develop core strength, flexibility, and speed as well as technical and tactical exercises that will accelerate your fencing development. For fencers who 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.
