This zoom class introduces kids ages 7-12 to the Olympic sport of fencing. This class focuses on the basics - what fencing is, and how to attack and defend. Learners will need a sturdy toy sword - foam works best, but plastic is good too - and a sturdy target to hit, like a pillow in a chair. In our virtual classes, a coach demonstrates all the movements for you and works alongside the learners, so they always have an example to follow. Our classes feature a lot of games to challenge...
Students will learn the types of fencing and the basic movements for all types of Olympic fencing.
Something to hit with: a sturdy toy sword, foam is best but plastic also works. Other options include cardboard tubes, a 12" ruler, or any other lightweight, durable object that easily fits in the learner's hand. Something to hit: a sturdy target at the height of the learner's chest. One easy option is to stuff a pillow into a sweatshirt and tie the sweatshirt's arms to the back of a chair. Athletic clothing: close-toed athletic shoes, clothes that the learner can move in Water bottle: we'll be moving, and they'll get thirsty!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is an exercise class. Learners need at least five feet by eight feet of cleared, obstacle-free space, and a sturdy toy sword and target. Parents should ensure that learners can move safely in their space and hit their target without breaking either the sword or the target.
