What is Junior Program?
It is a great way for kids from 7 to 18 to train and bout in an informal competitive setting. The program starts with footwork games (like Simon Says) followed by class instruction that ranges from “Improving your beat attack” to “Value of Point-in-Line”. Fencers then divided up by weapon and drill with a partner, followed by informal bouting.
Junior Program is taught by Andy and is assisted by other club fencers
