TEXT FOR BEGINNERS COURSES / JOINING INSTRUCTIONS
(OLD CLUB CONSTITUTION UNDERNEATH)
Fencing is a sport for people of all ages and sizes. All one really needs is the will to try it, and that competitive edge! It is an excellent all-round workout that enhances one’s reflex and co-ordination skills. It helps improve a child's focus, dexterity, confidence, and is even great in developing mental and psychological strength and stability through sportsmanship.
This course will introduce the essential foundations of fencing to absolute beginners as well as those who have had less than a year of training. Our goal for this course is to equip the young fencers with the essential knowledge they will need in order to leap frog onto our highly successful elite fencing program that is lead by 10-time Olympian Maestro Ziemek Wojciechowski and his supremely talented team of coaches where fencers have very successful national and international results ranging from our U9 fencers up to the level of Olympians!
