Students in this class must be invited by a coach. Beginners should register for Youth Beginner classes or take private lessons and be assessed for this competition-focused group.
At New Amsterdam Fencing Academy, fencers aged 9 through 12 enjoy weekly, two-hour-long group classes that emphasize the technical and the tactical aspects of the sport. Training is geared towards developing speed, strength, endurance, confidence, focus and self-control, all skills that help children do well not merely in fencing, but in school and in other organized sports.
**This class acts as a bridge between the youth beginner group and the two-hour junior class. Students who enroll in this group should have at least a full year of fencing experience.
Feel free to contact us if you have further questions.
