You need to give yourself at least one term working with a qualified coach to master the basics of footwork, lunges, parries and ripostes. Followed by LOTS of practice. Don’t worry we will soon have you fencing against others; its the best way to learn!
Is it safe?
Like all martial arts if you wear the correct clothing, use the equipment properly and follow the safety rules it’s safer than crossing the road.
All you need are loose fitting trousers, such as track suit bottoms, and trainers. We provide mask, jacket and weapons until you are ready to buy your own kit. This can set you back around £300+ so best to buy it a bit at a time.

If you’re over 50 and haven’t done any exercise for a while we recommend a check up with your Doctor first! Just to make sure but there is no age limit.
