Children's Beginners Workshop Knightsbridge
Hello everyone! It is our pleasure to introduce ourselves and the amazing sport of fencing.
Join 2-time European Champion Gabriella Hopka-Varga in an 13-week fun but intensive beginner's fencing course. No experience needed - just a whole lot of energy and enthusiasm! Get fit & learn the solid foundation of fencing - posture, positions, footwork plus the added benefits of strength conditioning routines.
Eligibility: All children ages 5 to 12 years old are welcome. No prior experience required. Children with less than 1 year's worth of fencing experience are also welcome.
ABOUT FENCING: Not only is fencing a beautiful and elegant sport by the nature of it’s movements, it is also a very broad discipline as it teaches your MIND & BODY to work together. One learns to think and move fast. It also challenges your reaction time against your opponent so you learn to make decisions very quickly – otherwise, you get hit! And THAT is an invaluable life skill. The techniques can be taught and learned slowly and methodically, allowing a fencer to develop a good memory and gain patience and perseverance along the way.
SOME BENEFITS OF FENCING: FOCUS • CONFIDENCE • CONCENTRATION • ATHLETICISM • BALANCE • COORDINATION • DEXTERITY • MENTAL STRENGTH • SPORTSMANSHIP
