Hello! Have you perhaps been seeing all the fencers at the Olympics? Our nation’s flag bearer Mariel Zagunis is a saber fencer, and MSNBC showed 18 year old Lee Kiefer fencing foil on Saturday. If that was your first time seeing fencing, or perhaps seeing it on TV reminded you that it’s something ‘you’ve always wanted to try,” come on down to our club! We have beginning foil lessons starting on Tuesdays and Thursdays in August–$75 gets you four weeks of introductory lessons plus equipment. All you need to try it are sneakers, long pants, and enthusiasm! While we recommend that people start with foil, if you’d like to learn more about Mariel Zagunis’ weapon, saber, join us on a Friday night–you’ll meet plenty of people more than happy to show you the basics.
