Fall 2020 Classes
September 14 - December 11
Traditionally, BRFC has offered foil fencing classes. Starting in Fall 2019, BRFC began offering an epee fencing class. We added a Saber class in Fall 2020. To avoid confusion, all epee and saber classes will be clearly designated. If no weapon is specified in the class description, the weapon is assumed to be foil.
NOTE: In Fall 2020, we will be offering restricted class sizes. Although classes are offered multiple nights a week, students will register for one night. Students who would like to register for an additional class may do so for an additional $80 per class.
Intro 1: Monday 4:00-5:00
Intro 2: Thursday 5:00-6:00 (Oct. 22 - Dec. 10)
Intro 3: Monday 4:00-5:00 (Nov. 2 - Dec. 14)
All students who have little or no prior experience with fencing should enroll in the Introductory fencing class.
All students who have some fencing experience or have successfully completed an intro fencing class and who are still working on the skills necessary for the intermediate class should enroll in the beginner class.
Coach: Sides (Monday), Carney (Tuesday)
All students who have successfully completed a beginner class and who have completed the skills necessary for the intermediate class (as recommended by Coach Sides) should enroll in the intermediate class. A student may also request a skills assessment and must pass the test given by Coach Sides to be placed in the intermediate class.
Coach: Sides (Monday & Thursday), Carney (Tuesday)
The advanced class is by invitation only from Coach Sides for those students who have mastered the necessary advanced skills.
The adult class is for older teens and adults who have limited fencing experience.
Friday 6:00 - 7:00
This class will teach epee to all interested students.
Friday 5:00 - 6:00
The class will teach saber to all interested students.
All classes are for ages eight and up.
There may be a few of you who are still unsure of which class to select. In these cases, we recommend enrolling in class with the lower skill level requirement with the option to move up the next level class if Coach Sides determines that your skills indicate you are ready to move to the next level.
