Looking for fencing classes in London?

You can start fencing at any age and soon reap the benefits: strengthening thighs, buttocks and stomach; reduced weight and increased agility. A certain amount of dedication will be required but it's worth it! We offer a variety of beginner level fencing lessons which will give you a good start:

Our beginners' fencing classes cover the basics of fencing and are the ideal taster of the sport. They are suitable for people who haven't previously taken fencing lessons, or for those who fenced a long time ago and would like to return to the sport. The participants of the beginners' classes are introduced to fencing rules, traditions, techniques and tactics. While learning the bladework, fencers exercise in pairs or with the coach. Acquired skills are practised further during the fencing bouts.

All elements are taught slowly and repeated often to ensure that students grasp the move - as well as understanding when it should be executed! By the end of the course the participants should have acquired general knowledge of the sport and feel competent to bout with the more experienced fencers.

Weekly class, 6 pm - 7 pm:

Introductory fencing class for beginners: 6 weekly lessons.

Covering all the elements described above, this class takes place on early Friday evenings. It's possible to swap with the 7 pm Monday or Thursday groups if they run on the same week (subject to places availability), so it's not a problem if you cannot make one evening.

Suitable for complete beginners and ideal if you wish to relieve stress and get some exercise after a day in the office: learn fencing, get fit and make new friends!
