2018 PREPARATORY FENCING CAMPS SCHEDULE

Olympic Sport Fencing and Historical Swordsmanship

Fencers This course offers a more intensive approach that refines the fundamentals of our Introductory course. The goal is to prepare students for the Intermediate level where they may fence other students with less direct close supervision. New techniques are introduced designed to rapidly improve knowledge of the basics as students continue learning about the foil, sabre, epee, longsword, rapier and dagger, and Scottish Broadsword, and will also learn how to fence using electronic scoring equipment.
