What comes included with group lesson tuition?

 

Aside from the group lessons, Beginner and Advanced may once per month swap your group lesson for a private lesson. We call these switch lessons. Equipment is also available for those who do not have any.

 

There are a lot of overlaps in the schedule, what is going on with that?

 

Intermediate students spend their time in the Beginners course, and then receive an extra 1/2 hour of additional training. Advanced students are required to do warm ups, stretching and footwork exercises on their own for 1/2 hour before formal instruction begins. 

 

What if my child fits into the advanced class age group but has never fenced before?

 

If we have an instructor available, we will provide an instructor to get your fencer up to speed during the half hour where advanced students are expected to work on their own. We encourage you to use your switch lesson early in order to get your fencer caught up, as well as a private lesson or two, depending on how quickly he or she picks up the concepts.

 

I have a group that would like to participate, how do we schedule that?

 

We love doing group introductory classes, as they say friends that slay together stay together. We are able to do group introductory classes on Saturdays between 1:00pm and 2:30pm, for groups up to 10 people. We request everyone arrive about 10 to 15 minutes early so all the waivers can be signed and collected before the class begins. Please see the Group Introductory Class section of the Scheduling and Pricing page to learn more.
