The Beginner class is an initiation to sabre fencing. You will learn the terms, fundamental positions, fencing safety, a clear mental image of correct form, and the motor patterns of sabre fencing. At the end of the program, beginners can continue their fencing journey by joining our regular program by choosing the monthly membership. Members who pursue fencing after the beginner program can continue to acquire and consolidate their fencing skills.

Fencing equipment rental will be provided with repurposed club equipment which must remain on site after each class.
