At the Salle Ursa 4-week fencing course for beginners participants are introduced to foil, epee and sabre fencing. We cover topics ranging from safety, the rules of the game, footwork (steps, lunges), bladework (hits & parries) and a general idea on attack and defence. The course includes tuition, skills coaching and fencing freeplay. We provide all necessary fencing equipment.
This is an ideal way to get introduced to the sport of fencing.
