Information
Fencing is a FUN way to stay or get in shape and is a fantastic sport for all ages, i.e. 8-70 years and beyond.  
 
It improves speed, agility, flexibility and reflexes and increases focus and concentration. So ... great for the mind and body!  
 
Olympic or competitive fencing is divided into three weapon categories: foil, sabre and epee.  
 
In this beginner level course, we will focus primarily on the foil.  
 
You will learn the rules, how to fence safely, and basic techniques (blade and footwork, etc.) ... with an opportunity to experience the dynamics of “Bouts” with fellow participants.  
 
Mask, glove, jacket and foil will be provided.  
 
Wear a t-shirt, comfortable pants (track pants) and good footwear (sneakers).  
 
Classes will be taught by members of the South Shore Duellist Fencing Club. 
 
Please contact for more information. 
 
Eligibility
Ages: 8 year(s) - 12 year(s)
