Ever wanted to learn how to sword fight or be the jedi you have always dreamed of being? If so, this is the class for you! Fencing is an addictive, fun, high intensity sport which involes sword fighting with rules, that determine who scores and who does not! The beginner class teaches the basic fundamentals to fencing and how you can use them to manipulate and defeat your opponent. Once I have determined you are qualified to handle your own amongst fellow enemies, I will move you into the advanced class, in wich I will prepare you for competition as well as showing you in depth tricks of the trade to becoming a master swordsman!
