What is the Southern Fencing Club?

Training format:

This is a fencing club, with fencing at the heart of the activities. The general aim is to replicate a whole competition in just 3 hours. Thus everyone does 5 fights to 5 hits, 3 minutes and then 3 or 4 fights to 15, 3 * 3 minutes. Fencers are to be self-presiding and agree on scoring of hits.

This is a training session where fencers are expected experiment and learn during the course of a bout. Fencers are not to be aggressive or intimidating. Less able fencers are to be respected and given help to develop, grow and learn.

Restrictions:

  • Over 14 years of age (lower, if ability warrants it, and if a parent attends and supervises)
  • BF membership
  • Own working and well maintained electric kit
  • All three weapons (hopefully, depending upon attendance)

Requirements:

Please bring a box from your normal club if possible. We will need around 5 boxes to be provided by attendees.

U14s 800N PLASTRONS AND PREFERABLY CONDUCTIVE BIBS AT FOIL.

Costs:

£7.50 per session, payable on the day

Reductions – £5.00 per session, payable on the day (Students, Amateur / Professional coaches, Southern Region or National organisers, Veteran or retired fencers, etc.)

Note that this is a not-for-profit club. Any extra funds accumulated will be re-invested in the club in the form of boxes, or ‘free’ sessions.
