Welcome from the CBMS Fencing Club!
Need some basic instruction to see if this sport might be for you (or your kids)? Looking to continue your fencing?
Want a vigorous workout that strengthens not only your body but mind as well?Greetings Fencers and families of Fencers!
Classes will be held from 6:30-8:00 at Crossett Brook Middle School. We will continue with 8:00-9:00 for open fencing - time for you to fence against each other, get additional instruction, ask questions and check out other weapons such as epee or sabre. The Open Fencing time is not part of the instruction time but is an additional/optional time that you can use to improve your fencing. I will need to know at the beginning of each class if there will be enough Fencers staying to have Open Fencing time.
Rules of the CBMS Fencing Club:
1: Wear outdoor shoes outside, leave them at the door and put on clean indoor sneakers for Fencing time.
2: Point a weapon at someone who does not have a mask on and you are done for the class. Do it twice ever and you are not eligible to Fence with us.
3: When the Instructor is speaking please be respectful and keep quiet.
4: No exposed skin. You must wear socks and sweatpants/pants to keep you covered to prevent injury. (No low riding sweats/pants thanks)
Please visit the this site for more information as it will be updated occasionally with the latest information. If possible, please let me know in advance if you will not be able to make class.
