Beginners Courses


The course will consist of 1 hour sessions every Thursday evening over 6 weeks .
At the end of which if you decide to continue fencing you’ll have a choice of whether to take a follow on 6 week course or to join the club as a full member.

The course will cover the basics of everything you need to know to get fencing.

You’ll learn key safety points, a variety of offensive and defensive blade work actions, and the footwork to put it all together. You’ll also end up with some tactical planning, and an understanding of how to gain feedback to steer fights in your favour. The structure will be group lessons with multiple opportunities for sparring throughout the course.

All equipment will be provided for the duration of the course. Please ensure you are wearing appropriate ‘sporty’ footwear (ideally court shoes, but outdoor trainers with a low heel are usually suitable), that your legs are fully covered with no forward-facing pockets (tracksuit bottoms/ leggings are ideal), and that you bring a water bottle.

Costs per course are £70 (12yrs-18+)

Places will be given on a first come first serve basis. Simply complete the download form (below),email it back to register your interest and we will send you payment transfer details to secure your spot!
