Private lessons

Schedule a Private lesson from the link below.

Private lessons are an important part of a complete training program to help a fencer improve and progress in this sport. It is helpful at all levels of ability. Private lessons can help the recreational fencer improve faster than in classes or open fencing alone. Private lessons are essential for every fencer who is competing at a high level. It may also be appropriate for some young fencers depending on interest and maturity. These individual lessons will allow a fencer dedicated time to practice the blade work (both offensive and defensive), footwork, timing, and distance that is much more difficult to perfect with other fencers who are just learning the sport. The coach will be able to practice more and more complex actions as the fencer progresses. Additionally, strategy and tactics are incorporated into these sessions.
