Tired of those boring stretches on the treadmill? Yoga too zen? Try fencing! It's a great workout that challenges your mind, too. And yes, adults can compete: there are even specific divisions for fencers 40-plus, 50s, 60s, and even 70s! Even if you choose not to compete, it's a sport you can enjoy your entire lifetime.
Our modular program allows adults to jump in at any time. Each week features a different set of basic principals taught across all beginner groups during that week; Our coaches are happy to advise you based on your goals and progress.Equipment:
Included for use during beginner groups; however we do strongly encourage fencers to buy their own mask and glove (about $70), which you can order at your first class. What to wear:
Beginners should wear sweatpants (not shorts or jeans) and exercise shoes.Past experience?
If you have had some past fencing experience and are starting up again after more than a year's break, we recommend signing up for the beginner group. The first couple of classes will get you reoriented to the basics, and then you can easily switch over to private lessons or the intermediate group once you feel caught up. If you prefer, we're happy to have a coach talk with you about your experience and recommend the best fit.Note:
- Come as often as you like, whichever day(s) you like; skip a week if you need to.
- 5-class cards expire two months from first use. 10-class cards expire three months from first use.
- Please come 15 minutes early for your first class to complete your registration paperwork etc.
- In addition, there is an annual registration fee of $40 payable the first day of class, waived for members.
