INTRODUCTION TO FENCING: An active, fun, "jump right in" approach to learning the Olympic sport of fencing. This course progresses quickly from basic movement to tactical exchanges of offense and defense, with a strong emphasis on technique underpinning all actions. This course assumes no prior knowledge of the sport, but upon completion of the sport, you will have a wonderful appreciation for both the athletic and intellectual sides of this modern sport with ancient roots.

2020 Sessions TBA
