Team Building with a difference

At PDX Fencing we’ve created a different and dynamic team building activity right in the greater Portland area! Our expert coaches will lead and inspire your team.

The Olympic sport of saber fencing is a perfect, fun team building activity. Because saber fencing requires focus, creative problem solving, tactics and strategy it is very relevant to many aspects of business.

Firstly:  Many people have heard of fencing but few have actually tried it. Therefore this creates a level playing field for your team, all participants have to try and adapt to learning something new.

Secondly: Focus, listening, implementation and effort come into play as the team helps each other learn new skills.  Consequently, managers and leaders understand what their team members may be experiencing when change or new skills are required.

Thirdly: Fun games and drills introduce the basic movements of footwork, then move on to defense and offense.  The team helps each other learn the basics then split into two teams.

Finally:  Each team decides to use different strategies to “outfox” the other team in a truly fun and dynamic activity. Above all – fencing is incredibly fun and stress relieving.

Cost:
$200.00 for up to 10 people, $15.00 per additional person.
Optional: foam swords $5.00 each to practice what you just learned (a great stress reliever at work!).

Inspiring team building through Olympic Saber Fencing
Client Reviews:
M. Hanchett (Providence): “Attended as a corporate team building event and it was a huge hit with everyone. Hector, our coach, was friendly and very patient. Cannot recommend them enough!”

Oregon Slacker: “I had the fortune of participating in a team building event with 9 other people. The event was easy to setup, very organized, and supplied us both with lunch and a great time. We were provided several coaches that not only knew fencing really well, but they were alot of fun. They intermixed inclusion exercises, games, as well as fencing education and instruction. After this instruction, I will never look at fencing the same.   Beware, if your group is high spirited the activities can become physically challenging (you will get tired). I would recommend this to anyone looking for an active, indoor team building activity.”
