Adult Fencing: A Time Honored Sport

Fencing is a fascinating, time-honored sport that teaches good sportsmanship and self-discipline. It fosters a healthy attitude towards individual as well as team competition and stimulates the mind by providing immediate rewards for using sound judgement. Fencing teaches everyone to enjoy winning and to profit from defeat, with the benefit of physical excercise.

Fencers become physically fit while training and they learn to outwit their opponents using strategy, technique, and physical endurance. These skills help people learn to make complex decisions, to analyze problems, and to think quickly.

Fencing is also a great activity for developing general athletic skills including: hand to eye coordination, speed, and agility. Fencers learn to compete individually as well as for a team.

Adult Introduction to Fencing: Ages 16+

Learning to fence can be challenging for some, but is rewarding for most! Fencing is a safe and exhilarating lifelong sport for all athletic abilities. This may come as a surprise, considering the sport's origins, but modern fencing equipment and rules ensure that injuries are limited to the occasional bruised arm, or ego. Some fence to win as many tournaments as possible, some fence to improve their physical fitness and many others just fence for the sheer fun of it. This class is not repeated.
