What does an introduction course entail?
SCA frequently organizes introduction courses. These courses are an excellent way to start fencing and to familiarize yourself with this beautiful sport.
An introduction course consists of four lessons of one hour each. During these lessons, the basics of fencing are covered, such as:
– Basic posture and footwork
– Attacking and defending; from lunging to parrying
– Rules and strategy
– Participating in a fencing bout
At the end of the course you will have mastered the basic techniques and tactics of fencing. With these skills you will be proficient enough to participate in our regular classes.

Our Corona protocol
We want to offer a safe and responsible training environment. The equipment used by our participants will be kept separate and won’t be used by other fencers. We take care to keep 1,5 meters distance during training and do not shake hands. We ask participants to wash their hands before and after training.
