Our Summer Camps introduce youth to the basics of fencing. You have lots of choices, selecting activities for your children, and we offer a unique opportunity. The sport of fencing is gaining popularity. Fencers like Miles Chamley Watson and the Men’s Olympic Foil Fencing Team have generated a lot of excitement. Right here in Birmingham, we have two coaches who bring their experience as the coach of an olympic fencing team and as an olympic fencer. Both were also Chinese national champion fencers. Our other coaches also have decades of experience, skill, and love of the sport.
Beginning with warm-up activities each day, classes cover footwork, handwork, rules and strategy. We provide all the fencing equipment. Your instructor for the summer camps, Yuanjung Wang, led the Chinese National Fencing Team as head coach and is an internationally recognized referee.
