DIAMOND BLADE FENCING CLUB SESSIONS

Hello everyone! It is our pleasure to introduce ourselves and the amazing sport of fencing.

 

Join 2X-British Champion Jonathan Webb on Wednesdays and Commonwealth Champion Soji Aiyenuro on Saturdays in our fun but intensive beginners and intermediate fencing workshops. Get fit & learn the solid foundation of fencing - posture, positions, footwork plus the added benefits of strength conditioning routines.

 

We believe in nurturing a strong sense of  individuality and self-reliance in every one of our students as well as fostering team spirit in group-based sessions. We stress the importance of playing fair and exhibiting sportsmanlike behaviour. 

SATURDAY PUMAS (BEGINNERS-INTERMEDIATE): This class is mainly for the youngest members, mostly in the 5-9 year-old age bracket and absolute beginners. Children with less than 1 year's worth of fencing (at school or otherwise) experience should join this session.

 

WEDNESDAY JAGUARS (INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED): 9-12 years old. 
This class is for children who have more than 1 year or 3 full terms of fencing (at school or otherwise) experience. This group will be doing steam fencing (metal but non-electric) and will be working on improving their fencing basics, strategy and tactics.
