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 (a water cooler is available, but rather than use the plastic cups we’d prefer you to bring your own reusable sports bottle).

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.

Update: Since the club reopened in August 2020, we’re running beginners courses as and when possible. To enquire about the next course, please email: rtwfencingclub@gmail.com.
