Courses begin every other month (see calendar here), and conclude with a tournament.
Courses will run given a minimum of eight enrolled fencers.
Introductory Fencing: Swordplay! Learn the rudiments of foil footwork, bladework, and strategy, as well as the rules of the game. By week four, you will be able referee each other in bouts, and at the end of the session you will compete in a class tournament. Age 10 and up.
Experienced Fencers: Students build on what they have learned to become ever more skilled. Every class ends with free fencing, either in foil or epee. Students may choose to become "Competitive" members of the USFA, and compete in tournaments in Denver and beyond.
Also consider:Equipment: All equipment will be provided for beginning fencing courses; experienced fencers will want to buy their own, eventually. A basic set for fencing costs approximately $120, and includes foil, glove, jacket, plastron, and mask. Some might choose to add a chest protector for another $20. Experienced fencers may rent the equipment from the club for $40 per session.
Private Lessons: In the context of class, your coach will work with you individually. To improve quickly, however, you may choose to meet before or after class for a 20-minute intensive one-on-one session, building your individual techniques, style, and strengths. ($60/month).
