Does my child need their own gear?
No, we provide gear for your child's first series of classes. After the initial series, we will assist you in purchasing the necessary gear for their continued participation.
Which weapon should my child fence?
The choice of weapon depends on the preferences of the individual child. We recommend watching YouTube videos to help your child determine which weapon they enjoy the most. They can also try both classes to see which one suits them best.
Can my child take saber and epee classes simultaneously?
Yes, early in a fencer's career, there is no need to focus exclusively on one weapon, as skills learned in one weapon can transfer to the other. However, as children grow older and become more competitive, they tend to specialize in one weapon.
