Foundation (Ages 7 to 11)
Our Foundation classes are designed to provide young fencers with a strong foundation in the sport, while inculcating the values of resilience, respect and sportsmanship. Classes are focused on coordination skills, core strength, footwork, and basic fencing techniques. Through this course we intend for our young fencers to gain confidence in their personal abilities, as well as develop a passion for the sport.
Fencers will receive a ‘Basic’ level certificate when they graduate from this class.
Development (‘Basic’ Certification)
Our Development classes are run for young fencers who have already attained ‘Basic’ certification. They are designed to cover advanced techniques, and to introduce fencers to the tactical and psychological aspects of the game. Classes will focus on building core strength and agility, with a greater emphasis on footwork fitness and technique. Young fencers will begin to appreciate the importance of strategy and timing in combat, and the required skills to execute them.
Fencers will receive a ‘Competitive’ level certificate when they graduate from this class.
