Add action to the scenes of your life with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one introductory private fencing lesson and one group lesson (a $55 value) at Dallas Fencing Academy on Dallas Parkway.
With a thirst for thrust, the instructors at Dallas Fencing Academy combine time-honored and contemporary tactics and techniques to train young swashbucklers and seasoned buccaneers in this ancient and physically challenging art. The head coach at Dallas Fencing Academy has the skills and experience to condition feet and hands into graceful paws of pursuit, bringing out the sure-handed Errol Flynn in every hang-dog Hamlet. An invaluable private introductory fencing lesson (a $35 value) hones newcomers for combat, wherein drills exercise the muscle while preparing the mind to dodge quick rapiers and recurring manholes. After the personal training session, recruits engage in a group instruction (a $20 value), where, like the Navy's synchronized swimming unit, they'll learn to perfect the choreography of their martial tactics in glorious tandem.
Call to schedule a private class with Dallas Fencing Academy before or after group classes, which take place Monday through Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Beginners, adults, and youth can test their two-step at any group session, where they will then split off into their respective experience levels, age groups, and mouth temperature. Though equipment, including weapons, headgear, and chest protection is included in the lessons, fencers are required to wear long pants, or fencing knickers. Registration fees are waived for Groupon holders.
