This class will get everyone in shape for summer sports!
Students will build up agility and stamina in an age-appropriate but challenging class involving:
- Stretch, Strength & Agility Exercises
JHU Head Coach Austin Young will introduce your child to the concepts of modern competitive fencing in a cooperative, kids-friendly atmosphere. Our program focuses on teaching the proper way to move (balanced advancing, retreating, lunging, acceleration units), using distance both for offense and defense, using the foil both to score on the opponent and to keep from getting scored on). At the end of the course, the students will get to experience fencing using the electric scoring apparatus.
The club provides all gear: masks, gloves, plastrons (a protective garment worn over the shoulder and armpit of the sword warm), and foils.
Classes will take place at the Homewood Fencing Club’s venue in the Johns Hopkins Athletic Center on San Martin Drive:
3400 N. Charles St. – White Gymnasium, Newton White Athletic Center
Baltimore, MD 21218, US
