Other clubs have fencers wait and compete with the other weapons for fencing strips. However, we choose to designate times for each discipline to provide a more focused experience. Rarely do fencers at Forte have to wait for an open strip. We recommend that fencers arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of their open bouting session in order to warm up and get the most benefit out of the 75 minutes.
