kids program is designed to provide an introduction for your
child (ages 7 to 12 years) to one of the most fascinating,
exciting and safest sports. Fencing develops discipline, balance,
coordination, and sportsmanship. Fencing helps the youth develop
quicker reflexes and an ability to make lighting fast analyses
of tactical situations.
kids fencing program has developed a very large foundation
for our pyramid of fencers, the apex of which cannot be higher
than the base is wide, meaning the wider the base the higher
we can reach. There is no predetermined method to pre-select
good fencers so all fencers must be given equal chance and
attention. Children develop at different mental, emotional
and physical rates and their goals change accordingly. There
are those who exhibit no talent during their first four or
five years of fencing and then become dynamite competitors,
while others may show the competitive spark from the first
Here like all beginners they are taught the warm up exercises,
fencing stance, footwork, lunges, simple attacks, parries
and riposte with some fun games added. They will be using
the standard FIE fencing equipments for children. We will
prepare them to compete in competitions.
ARE THE BENEFITS
There are many benefits to participating in kids fencing.
Children learn good sportsmanship and self-discipline. They
learn to compete independently as well as for a team; they
learn to enjoy winning and profit from defeats, while becoming
physically fit and healthy; and, most importantly, they learn
to make complex decisions, analyze problems, and think fast.
These ideals help children reach their potential in many areas
other than fencing.
Remember that the primary motivating factor for entering sports,
particularly among adolescents, is the desire to have fun.
