OPEN FENCING (LIMITED)
As part of their training program, fencers need to practice learned skills and keep in shape. These fencers will participate in bouts against each other and any other willing, and appropriately equipped, person. In order to use a facility, the fencers must pay what is called a “Floor Fee.” This allows them access to the strips, so they can work with their partner(s) to hone their skills and adapt to different fencing techniques.
At Phalanx (Sat/Sun): Forte will permit 6 fencers to attend each Open Fencing session. Each session will be limited to a single weapon and will have 50 minutes to fence.
At the American Legion (Thu): Forte will permit 15 fencers to attend each Open Fencing session.
You MUST sign up using the Lesson Scheduler to receive your admission ticket for Open Fencing.
