Learn to Fence in 2020: Starting January 8!

“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.

Friday 12/13/19: Performance Gym

Unknown

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!

We mean it: BMFA holiday closings!

kkk

No classes or lessons or open bouting on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31!

(Please note the clever rendering of Christmas Day on our scoring machine!)

Holiday closings: Dec. 24 and 31, 2019

Fencing — or watch children happily dance around Christmas trees (or whatever holiday decorations you put up)…

Fencing — or clink glasses and graze opulent New Years Eve buffets with friends and family…

Tough choices, we know.

But sometimes, we have to make tough choices.

Accordingly, BMFA will be closed on Tuesday, Dec. 24 (a.k.a., Christmas Eve) and Dec. 31 (a.k.a., New Year’s Eve.)

Put simply for our teenage members, such as Mr. Aidan “Captain Plum” Owens:

NO FENCING 12/24 and 12/24!

 

Nov. 19, 2019: Perform at the Performance Gym!

Just to keep us guessing—and Coach Larby lugging all fencing equipment hither and yon—all classes and lessons today will take place at the Knott Hall performance gym today.

(That’s the nice one on the upper level, with the knew-saving wooden floors.)

See you there tonight!

I have pressed USRowing National Team member (and son) Sebastian Amberger into service to do conditioning with the 6:30 and 7:30 classes today.
There’ll be lots of running and core work. And remember, we’re at the Lower Gym in Knott Hall again today!

November 8: Lower gym at Knott Hall

We’ll never figure out why exactly, but this coming Friday, Nov. 8, we’ll be back at the lower gym at Knott Hall.

Ignore the basketball kids and follow the sound of steel…
