How the fencing intermediate class works:
We offer an intermediate class for adults on Monday and Wednesday evenings. The intermediate session lasts for 30 minutes (straight after the club warm up) and is included in the guest fee and regular club membership. The class is a group bladework class.
The intermediate fencing class is designed for those who have already completed a fencing beginner class, and who are looking to develop and improve their fencing in a structured environment. In the class, you'll learn more advanced bladework and footwork, broaden your fencing repertoire and build confidence in your technique.
You'll discover more complex lines of fencing attack and defence, and more about fencing tactics. If you have already completed a beginner class, but are relatively new to fencing, then we encourage you join this class! You will also work with a wide range of coaches with different styles.
The fencing intermediate class takes place on Monday and Wednesday evenings, from 7.30pm-8.00pm, after which fencers join the electric fencing on the pistes. No advance booking is required.
The Monday and Wednesday sessions work as follows:
6.45pm Access to changing areas
7pm – 7.30pm Group warm-up & footwork session
7.30pm-8pm Intermediate class (group bladework class)
8pm-9.15pm Electric fencing on the pistes
