Junior Beginners Course – Epee
Six Weeks – Monday Nights – 4th Sep – 9th Oct 2023
6.30 pm to 8:00 pm
A six-week introductory course in Epee fencing, for under 18’s from 10 years old.
Epee is a very accessible weapon because the principles and rules of the weapon are very straightforward and very little specialist kit is needed.
You will need: tracksuit trousers, a T-shirt and trainers – we will provide everything else you’ll use on the course.
Each session is 1.5 hours and incorporates a general warm-up. The course covers the basics of fencing footwork; the principles of fencing with the epee; blade work techniques; practice ’bouts’, and an introduction to fencing using electronic scoring equipment. The course is led by Kate Smith, former British Champion (Senior and Veteran) and GB and England fencer, and Level 3 Coach.

This is such a nice club, and the teachers gave our son enjoyable and meaning full experience.
Our son and us as parents joined without any prior experience or knowledge.
However, from Day 1 he enjoyed, and it was interesting to see lesson and good to hear that he told us what he learnt.
We decided to continue membership for our son to practice further.
Currently the course runs 1.5hour per lesson weekly, this site has plenty of parking, high street and café, stores are nearby.
Therefore also convenient for parent who like to do their own things, or it is also nice to watch lesson.
We recommend anyone who likes to try something new, rare, and sport with long history.
We will have two children attending this lively, fun , professional club! Great teachers, great atmosphere and very friendly people teaching all aspects of Epee fencing. Highly recommend.
