Our Beginners’ Courses

© Worthing Fencing Club 2013If you are interested in trying fencing for the first time, then this is the course for you.

You don’t need to own any special clothing or equipment to complete the course – just come along in comfortable sports-wear.

Our coaches will teach you about the following:

  • Warming up
  • Footwork
  • En Garde – and the correct way to stand and move
  • Protective clothing
  • The three weapons – foil, épée and sabre
    We will specialise in épée
  • Basic techniques in attack and defence
  • An overview of scoring

Once you have completed the course you will be able to fence on the electric pistes with other members of the club.

Fencing keeps you fit and is so totally different from any other sport, it’s a must for those who have never tried it.

A word of warning though – once you try fencing, you’ll be hooked!

Our beginners’ courses normally run for ten weekly sessions on Tuesdays at 7pm – 9pm held at Bohunt High School. Membership and course costs are here.
