Fencing Summer Camps 2018

Summer Camps are a great way to introduce kids ages 7-13 to fencing. Each camp is for beginner and novice fencers. Current NMFF members are encouraged to attend.

New Mexico Fencing Foundation provides all equipment for fencing. Youth fencers are encouraged to join, as it is a great way to immerse into 16 hours of fundamentals, video analysis, and bouting.

We teach the fundamentals of footwork, bladework, tactics and technique. Our camps are designed to be high energy and fun. Fencers will learn the rules of engagement, scoring system and etiquette. We are the only Modern Olympic Fencing club in Santa Fe. We have state of the art, modern, and safe equipment for all fencers. Our central location is convenient. Camp attendance is limited to 12 participants.

Instruction is exclusively given by James Odom. 32 years of experience including US National Coach for 2009. He is certified in all three weapons – foil, epee and saber.
