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.

                  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 grades (C bronze, B silver and G gold) of personal proficiency achievements 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. Our high school performing arts program provides an introduction to the swordfight choreography of Shakespear's Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and McBeth also Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac.    Cyrano de Bergerac choreography
