We’ve got some risk-taking adventurers in our community who aren’t afraid of experimenting. Try your hand at fencing: a unique sport, rich in history, that offers something for everyone! Like climbing, it challenges you mentally and physically in a way that few pastimes can. This 90-minute intro covers the bare-bones foundational concepts needed to get started with Olympic-style fencing.
After a short warm-up and stretching sequence, you’ll be introduced to footwork, blade work, and safety rules. We’ll run through a few drills and wrap up the class with some bouting, where you can try your new skills against your classmates. Equipment is provided; students should wear/bring long exercise pants and athletic shoes (no jeans or sandals, please).
