Olympian Fencing Club's coaching team, helmed by U.S. Olympian and award-winning blade buff Velizar Iliev, shepherds students of all skill levels through sword-swinging sessions that bolster balance, agility, and strategy formulation. Neuvieme novices can orient themselves in the world of rapier weapons and wit in beginner-level classes—which teach proper épée employment, basic attack and defense tactics, and point scoring—and more seasoned swordsfolk can hone their skills in intermediate and advanced classes. Or, opt for the more fitness-focused open-fencing sessions, which eschew competitive matches for friendly bouts devoid of pressure and duel-invoking glove slaps.
During Olympian Fencing Club's intensive summer camps, warm-ups and team-building exercises limber up young students for more strenuous afternoon studies, which include drills and blade work. End-of-the-day bouts give them an opportunity to apply newly acquired skill sets that, in addition to preparing them for competitive fencing, may heighten their chances of winning marshmallow-spearing contests at more conventional summer camps.
