What happens after I have completed the beginner course?

After you have completed your Beginner course you will be invited to attend an Intermediate course where you will build upon the techniques you will have learnt so far and add new, more advanced moves to your repertoire. You will learn more about how to apply your fencing moves in fights and develop more tactical know-how. We will also show you how to improve your fencing-specific fitness with strength and conditioning exercises and speed and coordination drills.

After your Intermediate course you will be able to join the club as a full member, and receive individual lessons within the club sessions in order to build your confidence. When the time is right we will suggest competitions for you to enter if you wish to take your fencing to the next level.
