NOVICE PROGRAMS 

Practicing together improves technique more quickly than bouting or free play. 
Only after much practicing should you progress to bouting

 

The Novice fencing level can be defined anywhere from 6 months to two years of fencing experience.  Novice classes put together the newly learned skills while they work towards a higher level of proficiency.  It is recommended to take private lessons at this level.  We encourage you to select one of our membership tiers.  The earlier private lessons are taken in a students training the sooner private lessons have proven to create significant changes in confidence and skills.
