See how crossing swords with an adversary can help you improve as a person. Classical fencing is a martial art developed from several hundred years of the sword’s evolution. Through this art, you will develop camaraderie, self-discipline, reflexes, balance, fitness and critical thinking skills. You will learn this art’s basics, including the en garde position, stance, defense, attacks, and of course, courtesy.
We require that you bring little more than your willingness to learn and acquire new skills. We will supply all the equipment (available up to adult size 50). Wear comfortable pants, like sweat pants or running pants, to class (please, no jeans). You should also wear athletic shoes other than running shoes. A leather glove would be beneficial.
