Practicing together improves technique more quickly than bouting or free play.
Only after much practicing should you progress to bouting
The Novice program brings about an expectation for the beginner fencer to learn the foundational footwork and blade positions early and well in the process. We recommend repeating this class until a firm grasp is reached with the basics. We provide the foils and targets needed for practices and a skill tracker program to keep a close eye on your progress. Associate Membership with PFC and Non-Competitive USA Fencing Membership is required.
