Give your students something different to tell Mom when they go home? 

 

A Fencing demonstration and skills workshop conducted by Cheyenne Fencing Club introduces your students to the wonderful world of a uniquely, classic sport.

 

Fencing has it all; history, drama, romance, style, art, plus all of the advantages of an active physically demanding sport. Mentally it is mind consuming, allowing not a moment’s break.....not to mention it is just great fun!!!

Students of our fencing classes will get to experience the thrill of a fencing bout, using epee weapons in a completely safe environment.

They will learn the classic elements of fencing like the salute and the handshake that encourage respect for one another and introductory skills like:

  • Blade work 

  • Foot work and 

  • Game play

 

Cheyenne Fencing Society & Modern Pentathlon Center Denver will come to your school set up and provide all equipment.

"Fencing is an intensive physical replica of a computer game in which the mind must race quickly to meet the unforeseen challenges."

Some of the benefits of fencing​
  • Improves coordination, timing, confidence, self-control and poise. 

  • Fencing is not physically selective; your size, shape, or weight does not determine your success as in other sports. 

  • It is an excellent physical and mental exercise that accommodates boys and girls and adults of all ages.

  • Fencing can be done year round no matter what the weather.

  • Fencing teaches patience, strategy, swiftness and precision.
