We have rearranged Sunday fencing on a new schedule:
12 noon to 1:00 pm – Team Training
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm – Open Fencing
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm – Musketeer Epee
The change has two objectives. Shifting Team Training forward allows the people attending to apply what is covered in the session immediately in bouts in Open Fencing. Shifting Open Fencing later lets our Musketeer Epee fencers to come earlier if they wish to participate in Open Fencing. The result – more and better training or our members.
We are also changing how we manage our 3 Minute tactical and 5 Minute technical lessons to simplify the process. Now, if you want to take one of these in an open fencing session, the cost is a straight $20 a month for a lesson a week, added to your monthly invoice or invoiced separately. A sign-up sheet is available on the fencing floor. Individual lessons make a real difference in your ability to fence, and these short, but intense, lessons are a proven addition to a successful training program.
