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.
