“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.

We mean it: BMFA holiday closings!

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

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

NO FENCING 12/24 and 12/24!

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!

It’s Friday — the perfect time for Open Bouting!
