Our Adult Advanced Class is our “main” fencing class for adult students of all skill levels. We focus on arming students with the practical skills that they need in order to win bouts and progress as a fencer—no fluff, no mindless drilling of technique just for technique’s sake.
Classes start with a 10-minute warm up, followed by yoga-inspired stretching and breathing exercises. Footwork is next, where our focus is on quick changes of direction, explosive attacks, and keeping distance tactically. For our main lesson, we gear up and examine a realistic bouting situation: What techniques do you need? What caused the situation? How and why would you purposefully create—or avoid—the situation?
Classes are one hour long and meet three times a week.
