I’m really happy to announce that Princeton Interscholastic Fencing Session 2 is ready to go. This is the next 10 class session for introduction continued study in fencing.
This session is going to be organized slightly differently than previous. There are more fencers retaining in the program this time around that we are organizing into Introductory and Technical classes. Rather than simple age group classes. If we have sufficient fencers in the grade school and middle school groups I will have to investigate splitting them into separate groups.
Introductory groups will be the initial introduction to the sport and will follow the same lesson plan as in the past and in the PTO clubs. Introduction to fencing movement, basic blade work, the rules and the elements of good sportsmanship (salute and handshake before and after each game). The class will learn foil as the introductory discipline of fencing and the class ends with an electronic pool tournament.
The second level or Technical group will be looking into each weapon for two weeks. One week of foil to solidify priciples learned in the first session, then two weeks introducing epee and two weeks introducing saber where we will discuss the techniques and tactics that make these different weapons unique games in fencing.
