King's Swords Fencing Club has started a new "Prep Fencing" class for children aged from 6 to 8 years old.
The club uses new plastic masks and swords that are very light, very strong and very safe.The aim is to teach young children the basics of fencing. This will be done through fun and games but with a strong emphasis on the skill and techniques needed in the sport. They will practice with one of our coaches, each other and on special targets that our foil coach, Brian Riseley, has designed.
Fencing is a sport which will help your child grow in mind & body development, and it provides them with concentration and focus skills which can filter through to their academic life. Alongside this, our fencers will learn about team working, self-reliance, commitmentand dedication.
Fencers will graduate to the Beginners class upon their 8th birthday or at the discretion of the coaching staff. Our Prep Fencing class runs from 0900-0930 each Saturday during term time. Please see our Meeting Times page for more information.
