Classes cover beginner and intermediate techniques with the foil, as well as the Japanese art of Kendo and sessions on competitive play.

Students of all skill levels strive to sharpen their focus, footwork, agility, and balance with each practice. And, for the opportunity to see a professional sparring demonstration, they can even plan a birthday party through the center.
