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 full time.

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!
