  • Advanced: In this course, you will focus on using more advanced offensive and defensive strategies as well as compound attacks. There is a stronger emphasis on cardio and endurance. You will be encouraged to purchase your own equipment for this course. Prerequisite: Introduction to Fencing or equivalent. 10-11:30 PM Cost $80.00 for 10 Classes
