fencing club

Welcome to fencing club


During this term year two children will be participating in fencing club. Fencing club is run by a fencing coach through the School Sports Partnership.


During the six week course, children get to use real fencing equipment and learn the basics of fencing. Children learn the importance of respect for each other and discipline when competing in a fencing match. They wear protective masks and use foils to compete against a partner in a short fencing match. Children enjoy competing against each other and are very honest to say "touché" when they have been hit. The children always shake hands and salute and the end of a match.
