Fencing is an individual sport that requires one on one instructions.
It can be learned in a group class setting, where students practice challenging each other. But in order to refine and sharpen the fencer’s technical abilities, private lessons are strongly encouraged. At Avant-Garde Fencers Club coaches accord fencers their complete attention in 20 minutes private lessons working in perfecting handwork, footwork and agility skills.
AGFC members may schedule weekly reoccurring private lessons and qualify for prepaid private lesson discounts.
