Fencing is a great exercise for your body, mind and soul.
Fencing is considered to be physical chess, because, fencers must constantly use their brains to analyze, build strategy, make quick decisions and take chances, while using their bodies to execute the actions planned.
Our Fencing Program
Come play physical chess with us = FENCING!
Our classes offer great physical exercise, game time, fencing skills development that also include mental and cognitive skills development:
"Fencing absolutely increases focus and concentration, as well as the powers of observation. It also develops self assurance and discipline. The mind must constantly work and build its decision making skills. Building on these skills can improve ones performance in many other aspects of daily life."
While we do like to promote fencing on a competitive level and encourage tournament participation; fencers who prefer not to compete, can still enjoy their physical activity, learning new skills and socializing with their friends.
The skills learned and knowledge gained during our classes are not only designed to develop physical and fencing skills, but also teach important skills and life lessons for the future.
