Equipment

At this level, you must have your own fencing equipment.

Program Duration

In general, our Intermediate Level fencing class lasts 9 to 12 months, but the coaches will decide when to recommend moving the fencer on to the next level of advanced fencing based on athlete’s readiness (in physical, competence and mental levels).

Program Structure

This Intermediate fencing program consists of 2 group classes per week, which are 1.5 hours long each.

It is expected that you take private fencing lessons when you attend Intermediate class.

Each group lesson in this Intermediate level fencing class starts with a warm up, in which our coaches implement elements of a game depending of the age of the class. After warming up, the fencers will work on different elements of technique, drills, foot and hand work, target work, work in pairs and of course fence using the electric equipment.

Program Cost

The cost of the Intermediate class is $335/month.
