The training courses are based on the British Fencing Association
grading system. The courses will teach Grade 1 Foil with the
appropriate certification upon completion of the course. The
Foil course will last for six one hour lessons and upon completion
of the course, participants will be able to join the club
All equipment will be provided - it is recommended that on
the first lesson, participants wear a T-shirt, long tracksuit
trousers or suitable equivilent and indoor trainers. The sports
centre at Millais provides changing facilities.
There is a gentle warm up at the start of each lesson. The
courses welcome anyone over the age of 11 - we have had ages
from 11+ to grandparents!
The Foil course will teach you the proper stance, how to
hold the weapon, how to move correctly, attacks and defence.
Why learn to fence? To have fun, socialize and get fit!
