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 nine levels but they are offered three at a time starting with Levels 1-3. These three levels check the basics of 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.
The full syllabus can be found on the British Fencing website
The cost of taking the Award can be found on the What does it cost page. If the Award level is not achieved the fee will be carried forward to the next assessment session or a lower level may be awarded instead at the option of the fencer.
