We will be starting a new beginners course at Durrington High School on Sunday 23rd November 2014 at 10am. If 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
- 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
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!
