This program builds upon all beginner instruction, and are most valuable whentaken after the completion of one year of Beginner Fencing. Safety and sportsmanship, as always, are emphasized throughout the program. Compound attacks and technical terms associated with more advanced fencing moves will be introduced as students develop technique and understanding of the sport.If time allows, members of the class will participate in bouting: practicing with electrical fencing equipment. This practice will allow fellow students to learn score-keeping and refereeing. If students consistently continue with this program, they will have the chance to compete in a fencing tournament that follows the US Fencing guidelines.
*This ten week program will NOT meet on October 10.*
Participants will need a basic set of fencing equipment: foil, mask, glove, jacket and a fencing bag. While we have some equipment available for fencers trying out the class for the first time, participants will need to buy their own equipment in order to continue with the class.
