LITTLE MUSKETEERS Sabre Fencing Program
is specifically tailored for children of a young age who have not fenced before. The goals is to safely teach students the basics of the sport of Fencing by introducing proper actions and lead them through a variety of conditioned exercises that will improve their balance, agility and timing. The classes are organized into consecutive, progressive sessions that enable all students to continue to build upon their fencing skills, techniques and knowledge.
Fencing equipment is provided for each student by IndySabre Fencing Club and assigned to each student for the duration of this class.
Fencing classes consist of conditioning sessions, warm-up stretches, fencing footwork, blade work, individual and group instructions, various relevant games and drills, practice bouting, introduction to refereeing and more. Fencing is a workout for both the body and mind; sometimes being referred to a mental chess game. Each session concludes with a practice tournament and Awards Ceremony.INSTRUCTOR: Maestro Val Kizik and Ellen Kizik will return as Orchard's Fencing Coaches. IndySabre Fencing Club
