Private Lessons


One on One

Private lessons are at the heart of a fencer’s progress. Success in fencing is a 3 part recipe : 1. Group classes and bouting with your friends to practice 2. Private lessons and lastly 3. Competition

Let’s focus on private lessons:

The student spends approximately 25-30 minutes one-on-one with a coach. This allows the coach to correct and focus on what each individual needs to progress. Immediate feedback allows the student to instantly implement what was just learned. To make the most of the time, please have your child/or yourself warm up PRIOR to the lesson – about 8-10 minutes ahead of time. That way the coach will not have to spend the time being sure the athlete is physically ready to start.


Private Lesson fees:
You must cancel a lesson 24 hours ahead of time or you will still need to pay unless a medical emergency, you may cancel on line using the same scheduling link. The cancellation will immediately go to the coach’s cell phone.

Doing things correctly as soon as possible is much better than unlearning bad habits. Coaches focus on many areas including technique, skills, tactics, critical thinking, and mental preparation.
