ABOUT THE CLUB:
In our after school clubs, we introduce the students to the foundation, history, rules & techniques in fencing. They are engaged in a variety of game-based coordination drills as well as agility and strength exercises. We stress the importance of playing fair and exhibiting sportsmanlike behaviour. A child learns invaluable life skills while engaging in fencing as a sport! We use a progressive approach and even offer fencing grading exams based on the British Fencing Achievement Awards Scheme (Grades 1-6).
