Fencing Club

Fencing club are meeting on Tuesdays in terms 5 and 6, 3:30-4:15 and will be open to KS1 and KS2. Mr Feaster, who has represented Team GB as a fencer, teaches the club.

Fencing club have been learning all the basic moves including the en garde, lunge, parry and how to properly salute your opponent before and after a fight.

The weapon that we have been using is called a foil which means that to score a point you must stab your opponent on the torso. It is important to wear a mask to protect our eyes (even if it is boiling hot).
