We train at our Mitcham venue on Tuesday nights, 7pm-9:30pm.
Our After-School class is also held here, Thursday afternoons during school terms, 4:30-5:30pm.
We train most weeks of the year, except for a Christmas break from mid-December to mid-January.
Tuesday training begins at 7pm for all fencers. There is a junior class for U13 fencers which finishes at 8pm (they can then optionally stay to do more fencing if parents permit). The rest of the fencing squad warm-up and do footwork drills starting at 7pm. These are followed by group drills, free-fencing practice and individual lessons. At the moment this session is predominately sabre fencing.
When numbers permit, a seperate adult beginner class is held starting at 8pm.
Visitors are welcome, there is a visitor fee of $20. Visitors must be affiliated with their state or national fencing association. Equipment is available for hire if required.
