We have a new class combing fencing and archery!  Olympic Fencing classes are conducted in the discipline of epee. We use standard fencing gear currently approved by and meets all safety requirements of US Fencing Organization.  Although we use actual fencing foils to conduct our classes - foils are lighter, more flexible, and are easier for younger kids to handle - we teach the foundational skills in epee. Classes focus on introduction and reinforcements of the fundamentals of fencing including footwork, handwork, strategy, and rules of fencing. Students will learn and reinforce various fencing movements and actions and will learn new actions and combinations. These one-hour classes include group exercises as well as drills in pairs and bouting. After the 3 weeks of fencing, we go into the Olympic Recurve Archery class. We use bows specifically designed for kids and to be very light pull, we use arrows that have "marshmallow" oversized extra soft foam ends and are designed for Archery Tag. The targets are also foam and are designed for use with the specialized arrow. Kids learn foundational skills in Olympic archery such as posture, breathing, and bow control. Kids also wear safety equipment similar to paintball protection, but do not shoot at each other. The archery portion is 3 weeks.
