    “The first day of class involves a discussion of the different types of Olympic weapons followed by a warm-up, so wear comfortable clothes, tennis shoes and bring water on the first day of class. We learned the basic salute, stances, how to advance and retreat. We learned about the protective clothing worn and why it is required and how to apply them. It was enjoyable and I look forward to the remaining classes.”

  • “Enjoy!”

  • “I had the greatest experience at the Fencing center, everyone is friendly and made learning fun and enjoyable.”
