Weekly lessons, both group and private, as well as consistent practices are mandatory for young fencers interested in both polishing their skills and in competing.
However, a short-term, intensive work-out is periodically in order to really pin down and master a certain skill. That’s why New Amsterdam Fencing Academy’s core training program is regularly augmented with camps and clinics during the summer months (June through August), as well as over winter and spring school breaks.
For four or five hours a day, campers have the opportunity to experience unprecedented, in-depth training in footwork, bladework, and bouting, with video analysis available for catching mistakes instantaneously, and games to blow off some steam (while reinforcing key skills, of course).
For the beginning fencer, we also offer introductory camps. There are no camps currently scheduled. Check back for updates, or contact us to be included on our mailing list.
