Fencing Introduction + Training Session
Give fencing a try and get sword-fighting fit
Learn the art of sword fencing in a few hours. Fighting Fit Fencing's two-hour workshops are fun, exciting, stimulating and a great way to meet people. Your induction will start with a health and safety talk, followed by fencing footwork and blade basics, and finishes with an action-packed fencing duel. All kit and equipment is supplied so a tracksuit, trainers, t-shirt and enthusiasm is all that you will need to bring. All beginners' sessions use Olympic-style metal fencing equipment not the plastic imitation stuff. They only do the real thing at these classes. On completion of your workshop, your new swashbuckling skills will have given you enough fencing knowledge to pass your Fighting Fit level 1 grade, ready for you to move on to the next stage as an intermediate. Touché. Over 14s only. Valid ID may be required. Please wear long legged tracksuit bottoms (no shorts), trainers and t-shirt. Showers are available. Participants may need to sign a waiver to participate.
