Olympic Sport Fencing: Foil, Sabre, Epee

This class offers a more intensive approach that refines the fundamentals of the Introductory class. The goal is to prepare students for the intermediate level where they may fence other students without close supervision. New techniques designed to rapidly improve knowledge of the basics are introduced as well as how to fence using electric equipment. Students continue learning about the sabre and epee, and also are introduced to the Historical Swordsmanship program.
