Historically, classical fencing has shown itself to be one of the earliest renaissance pursuits which encompassed correct manners, deportment, protocol and of course swordsmanship.   "... for it is my unshakeable belief that fencing should be a cardinal part of any program of education; for I assert that the all-important intangible moral qualities and virtues inherent in the spirit of swordsmanship, unquestionably bring fencing into the field of essential education."  Aldo Nadi    This quote appeared at the beginning of the 20th century and remains equally valid in physical education of today.

CLASSICAL  FENCING 

                  ARTISTIC / STAGE FENCING

 WELCOME, to classical foil fencing.        The Foil is the basic training weapon of ALL fencing being designed specifically for that purpose and unlike the other disciplines, historically was never used in combat.  Classical foil fencing is visually adjudicated by a President and a Jury of 4 Judges.  The En Garde! program involves teaching the sport's fundamental skills through 3 levels (bronze, silver and gold) of personal proficiency achievement leading to the student being able to judge, preside and fence in a formal, visually adjudicated foil competition.          Enjoy as you start learning the Sport-Science and Performing Arts of Fencing!  

WELCOME, to the artistic side of classical fencing. So, just what is Artistic or Stage Fencing?  Well, it's a fantastic way of being creative with the sword movement of classical fencing and be able to perform in front of a live audience, or for film and TV.  Think of all the shows where swordfight choreography has been used to add excitement in a story: Musketeers to Zorro to Pirates to Jedi Masters; and the list goes on!   All the fights are well choreographed, which requires creativity, focused concentration, physical endurance, team work, dedication to training and performance and, some acting.....Exciting isn't it?!
