Homeschool Beginning fencing class
The next set of Homeschool beginner classes will begin Wednesday, January 10th, 2018 at 1:30 pm in the basement of the Tileston gym. Returning fencers can show up at 1:00 pm.
The class lasts for eight sessions with each session lasting approximately one hour. If weather or other issues force a cancellation we will add classes on until we get to 8 sessions.
Class will teach history, footwork, bladework, rules, tactics, and end in a class tournament. Appropriate for ages 8 – 18.
Cost for the 8 session class is $40. You will also need to have a USA Fencing membership for insurance purposes. The non-competitive membership costs $10 and is good until July 31, 2018. The membership can be purchased online at usfencing.org under Membership. Memberships can also be obtained through a paper form, however, USA Fencing charges an additional $10 for processing paper forms. I will have instructions for the online process if you cannot make it work.
Fencers should wear sneakers and loose fitting clothing. CFFA provides all fencing equipment.
Class is taught by Greg Spahr, head coach of the Cape Fear Fencing Association. He is an internationally accredited coach and has fenced internationally. His students have won both men’s and women’s North Carolina High School Championships, collegiate titles, have finished in the top 8 of National events, and won medals at World Championships.

Once a student has passed the beginning class, the cost to continues remains at $40 per 8 week session or the standard floor fee of $5 per visit.
