Some people are motivated by tests and exams and some are not! For those that are Blackheath have just started offering the British Fencing Achievement Award to its members.
The awards have six levels which check the basic understanding of fencing, safety, etiquette and the principles of attack and defence. Some questions are ‘show me’ and some are ‘tell me’ and we coach for both.
We are now using these as a basis for our coaching and we hold a 5 minute Achievement Award training session at the beginning of each session.
The full Achievement Award programme can be found on the British Fencing website.
Here is a direct link to the foil award.
The cost of taking the Award can be found on the What does it cost page.
