Fencing 2

This class is designed to take students who have done well in the Intro class, and help them gain the skills and knowledge required for promotion to the first rank in our school. We will focus both on the etude, and on the beginnings of partner work.

Sunday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30pm
For ages 10-up. You must have completed the Intro class at least once and have the instructor's permission. If you are not sure whether you are ready for this class, email and ask.

This class is designed for easy entry to participation in the classes at our salle d'armes.

At the Salle d'Armes

To participate in classes at the salle d'armes, membership is required, unless otherwise specified.
The membership fee is monthly, rather than a "per class" fee.

 

Ongoing Sword Classes

Summer Class
Sundays, 2:00pm-3:00pm
This class begins where the IYB classes end, and is appropriate for all levels beyond Fencing 2.
We will primarily focus on the use of the smallsword, but also occasionally study other weapons.
Students in this class must be taking individual lessons, in order to gain the greatest benefit from their practice, and participation in the class is by invitation only.
Individual lessons are available by appointment.
