olympic fencing class for young musketeers

Grades K-6

Description: Olympic Fencing for Young Musketeers classes are conducted in the discipline of epee. We use standard fencing gear, which meets and exceeds all current safety requirements of USA Fencing. Although we use actual fencing foils to conduct our classes - foils are lighter, more flexible, and are easier for younger kids to handle - we teach the foundational skills in epee. Classes focus on introduction and reinforcements of the fundamentals of fencing including footwork, handwork, strategy and rules of fencing. Students will learn and reinforce various fencing movements and actions and will learn new actions and combinations. These one hour classes include group exercises as well as drills in pairs and bouting. Skills are reinforced with age-appropriate games and activities that build conditioning, speed and endurance while emphasizing critical thinking and quick decision-making. En Guarde!
