This camp focuses on the fundamental rules and skills of the exciting and safe sport of modern Olympic fencing. Students learn fundamental skills such as basic footwork and blade work with the foil — a light thrusting weapon — as well as the basic rules of play and safety requirements of the sport. Instruction is with a coach, in groups and working with a partner. There is time for fencing bouts with others at the end of each day. Come prepared to exercise and have fun!
"Please wear clothing you can exercise in comfortably, including athletic shoes and long, loose pants. Bring a water bottle and a snack. We provide the fencing equipment for use during the camp - a foil, mask, glove, jacket, and chest protector - at no extra charge. Please visit our website at ncfencers.org
