Students enjoy a step-wise, intensive introduction to the technique, rules, strategy, and improvisational beauty of the sport of fencing. They enjoy the learning process and take
pride and pleasure in their efforts by focusing on the rewards, not the labor involved. Through activities and exercises they develop fundamental skills in a way that brings fun and exuberance to the learning process. From the first traditional
salute at the beginning of class to bouting practice at its end, the focus is on good sportsmanship, self-regulation, athleticism, and the magic of the swash and buckle.
