What is fencexercise?
Quite simply, fencing, combined with exercise. The fencing is performed with an epee (based on the duelling sword), which you will be taught how to use.
The exercise consists of a programme to improve the dynamic speed for fencing, for general sport, and for health.
All aspects of this training will help you to perform every necessary skill and movement, faster and more efficiently. The successful performance of a fencer/athlete depends largely on an ability to react quickly, and to change speed and direction at a moment's notice.
The minimum age is twelve years old. If a younger person (nine to eleven years old) really wants to join, then exceptions may sometimes be made, and the parent/s will be strongly encouraged to join (which makes it a family activity and is better than just watching).
The cost for non beginners to fence and exercise at The Oval sports hall on a Wednesday is £5 per adult, £3 if under eighteen. The cost to use the track on a Tuesday is £3.50 per adult, £2.50 if under eighteen
