St Mary's School, Hampstead

Dear Parent/Student,

 

Hello everyone! It is our pleasure to introduce ourselves and the amazing sport of fencing to the St Mary’s School Hampstead community. 2-time European Champion Gabriella Hopka-Varga, GB World Class fencers Soji Aiyenuro and Yvonne Chart  will all be coaching this term. All coaches have extensive experiences and successful results in the exciting world of international fencing and look forward to continue inspiring a new generation of athletes! 

 

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).
