Three Rivers Fencing Center’s head coach Iana Dakova, a national champion fencer, and her foil-wielding staff enable deft swordplay during Wednesday-evening fencing lessons. Coaches outfit fencers in modern safety gear before covering basic footwork and blade work, such as parries, ripostes, and using sabers to skewer fresh vegetables. En garde students reap the additional benefit of included instruction in the noble history, safety rules, and health benefits of fencing. In the event of classes reaching capacity, alternates should check back often for additional classes and advice on how to appear more swashbuckling.
