It's Easy to Train at Home

Find a space roughly 8X5 ft (an average area rug), and you have a training salle.

Place your laptop, or mobile device where you can see it. If you are in a live class, turn on your webcam for coaching tips.

Train Safely

In a beginner class, you're working out the movements for proper attacks and defenses. Control is a big focus, and all contact should be gentle. By moving slowly, you're learning how to be accurate, efficient, and a good training partner. 

And remember to wear your mask! 

Fun Fact:  Fencing doesn't need great strength. Longswords weigh about 3 lbs. Synthetic trainers are even lighter.

I think my favorite part is how I just move better now - like through life. Better balance, better posture... I didn't know I'd get that too.
