Knee-joints rejoice, on 2/21, wer’e back again at the four-court gym!
Bring your best game to the Performance Gym in Knott Hall on Valentine’s Day afternoon and evening!
We’ve been ousted from Wheeler Hall for the night due to gangly youths dancing at our usual venue.
The upside: Wooden floors!
Due to exams, fencing classes will take place at the Performance Gym in Knott Hall again!
We thought we’d be open after the foil classes, but we want to keep you from ending up like this:
See you back on Friday!
“Is Fencing Right for My Kid?”
Fencing at its most competitive is a highly athletic and intellectual sport that emphasizes top all-round physical fitness, lightning analytical capabilities, and emotional resilience. Even competitive youth fencers often exceed peers who are active in other sports in regard to aerobic and anaerobic capacities, agility, endurance, and the ability to adapt rapidly to new situations.
In addition, fencing is just pure FUN! Each “bout” (individual fencing match) is like a new book, with plot twists and turns that you have to respond and adapt to — and then re-write your own “story” based on the new information… as your opponent does just the same with his or her story.
First Friday: BMFA resumes its full program of classes and private lessons on Friday, January 3, 2020.
There will be no fencing activities on New Year’s Eve: NO FENCING ON DEC. 31, 2019!
Also: If your BMFA has siblings or friends who always have been wanting lear to fence:
Bring your top game to the Performance Gym on Friday, Dec. 13, 2019!
Yes, that’s the upper level of Knott Hall. All classes, lessons, and open bouting!
No classes or lessons or open bouting on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31!
