About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

The Olympic sport of fencing demands a blend of tactical and strategic thought and a physical execution of those decisions. This has led many to describe the sport as "physical chess." Fencing also teaches balance and discipline and even more than this, it's fun! This class is for those new to fencing or those who would like to work on the basic skills. This class will cover basic rules, etiquette, basic footwork, attacks and defenses. Classes will consist of warm up time, footwork time, group lesson and bouting.


Due to personal nature of the equipment used for fencing, the students will be required to rent a mask and a glove from Midwest Fencing Club during the first session at Community House location. The students will be responsible for this equipment during the duration of the class. This means, taking this equipment home and bringing it back for the session and also making sure it is only used by them. Each fencer will be required to pay $150.00 collateral fee for the equipment rental on the first day. This fee will be returned after the equipment is given back when the Fencing class is over. We accept cash or check.
