7:35-7:45pm: Warm-up and stretch, we will guide you through a session allowing you to warm up at your own pace according to your level of fitness and then demonstrate and assist you with stretches that will prepare you for fencing.

7:45-8:05pm:  You will learn the basic footwork movements (on guard position, stepping forward and back, lunging).
