The classes are of mixed ability and age, 4 - 10 years. At the beginning of the lesson we play a number of warm-up games. The children are then taught the various fencing moves - using foam swords and plastic masks - which they then get to try out against each other. To finish we play more games based on improving hand-eye co-ordination and reflexes. There are levels of achievement which the children work towards and we strive to make the classes as much fun as possible. As the children move forward through the levels they move from using foam swords to plastic foils which mimic the real thing.
Classes last 1 hour and cost £8.50 per class.
