Summer Learn to Fence Camps

Unleash that inner Jedi knight or Musketeer and get off that device! Fun, warm up games focus on agility, co-ordination, paying attention. Learn the basic defense and attack skills. Drills for blade work, technique and beginner tactics. Fencing teaches creative problem solving, listening skills, discipline, good sportsmanship, self-confidence, perseverance and a host of wonderful life skills, most importantly it’s fun! Professional coaches lead an active, fun class learning to master the sword and making new friends. Wear a light comfy T-shirt, long basketball shorts or comfortable pants (Knees should be covered) and wear tighly fitting athletic shoes..
