EN GARDE. PRÊT? ALLEZ!

The Olympic sport of fencing demands quick thinking, agility, poise and speed.  Fencing also develops discipline, respect, maturity and good sportsmanship, qualities that carry through to our every day life.  This class is for those new to fencing or those who would like to work on the basic fencing skills. This class will cover basic rules, etiquette, footwork, attacks and defenses.  Classes will consist of warm-up, footwork, group lesson and bouting.
By purchasing the equipment at $65 (included in the fee) all future sessions will be priced at $186 for 6 weeks.
Classes are taught by the Midwest Fencing Club.
Equipment can be donated back to Midwest Fencing if a student does not wish to continue fencing lesson.

For ages 7-14
