Intensive Training

Considering the group size that we've managed to draw in this year's Intensive Training sessions, we've decided that for Season 2016/2017 we would split the sessions into two, with the first consisting of A, B and C-rated fencers, and the second of C, D, E and Unrated fencers. We believe that such grouping of fencers with similar skill levels would bring about more efficient coaching and better bouting experiences. On top of this, we've considered our strip numbers and decided that a class of 30 fencers would be the most conducive for the sessions. Please therefore register your interest by filing out the form and placing a $100.00 deposit for each session to reserve your spot!

There will be no open bouting sessions in the evening of all Intensive Training Sessions.
