Junior Beginners’ courses

Whether you’re quick of limb or fast of thought, learning to fence will stimulate your brainbox in fiendishly fun ways. Of the three swords used in the modern sport of fencing, the epee is a brilliant weapon to start with as there are no tricky rules and no limit to the target area – so, ultimately, you’ll be able to hit your opponent almost anywhere you like!

Each session consists of a general warm-up, footwork, technical exercises and sword fights! All equipment is provided, just wear tracksuit bottoms and trainers – and bring a drink.

If you’re not sure if you want to commit to the whole course before even trying the sport, that’s no problem: just pay for first ‘taster’ session then see how you feel. The cost per session is £10.

Our new Monday 7-8pm beginners’ courses are for under 10s and under 14s. Term will start on 5th September and end on 12th December. Our new Sunday beginners’ courses will begin on 11th September and finish on 18th December – the U10 classes take place from 930-1030am and the U14 class from 130-230pm. See the ‘Classes & Courses’ page for the dates when we’ll be closed.
