Improve your child's balance, reflexes and speed.

Your child's development in the elite Sport of Fencing starts here.

A fencer's foundation begins with understanding and mastering basic fencing concepts. Children from the ages of 6 through 8 are still mastering balance, coordination and refining fine motor skills.

This 40 minute class, held once per week, is designed to prepare your child to enter the sport of fencing with proper muscle development and speed needed to succeed in this sport, in a safe environment with age appropriate instruction.

Given the age group, there are no fencing bouts in this particular class. Students will use our foil swords... with blade work sword drills but no actual bouting. There will be fencing footwork to help condition the muscles to become acclimated to all the movements in fencing. Your child will learn to think and move as a fencer, while having fun!
