Have your kids come spend a week (or daily) learning the oldest modern Olympic sport - fencing. This fencing camp is geared to kids 8 to 14 that have little of no background in the sport. The focus will be on fun and recreation, learning the basics of footwork, blade work, distance, speed, agility, tempo, and the psychology of fencing. This is a great chance to introduce your child to a new sport for the school year. Fencing has been called “physical chess”, where strategy and tactics are implemented with physical movements. Speed, strength, and endurance, although important, can be overcome by metal agility. Strategy and technique can overcome raw physical ability. Fencing can improve your child's confidence, concentration, plus physical and mental agility. And yes, it’s fun.
