The first session of the course for beginners will follow the following format:

7:00-7:05pm:  Arrival, Welcome and introductions.

7:05-7:15pm: Warm-up and stretch, we will guide you through a session allowing you to warm up at your own pace according to your level of fitness and then demonstrate and assist you with stretches that will prepare you for fencing.

7:15-7:35pm:  You will learn the basic footwork movements (on guard position, stepping forward and back, lunging).

7:35-7:55:  Fun pair exercise; you will learn to maintain ‘fencing distance’ opposite your partner and lunge at the correct time.

7:55-8:35: You will learn how to hold your sword and hit your coaches (us!) with a lunge. Once you have mastered the technique of hitting safely and defending using a parry, then you will be able to further practice your paie exercises with a fellow beginner.

8:35-9:00pm: You will be able to try what you have learnt so far in your very first FRIENDLY FIGHT!
