Fencing

Fencing is a fun energetic sport often seen in the Olympic games where it has been time honored for over a hundred years! Mountain West Swords Academy offers group and private classes for students learning the three Olympic  blades, Foil, Saber, and Epee. But additionally, there are opportunities to learn various other athletic skills such as stage combat, tumbling, and self defense. Our program is competitive and offers skill based instruction that incorporates endurance training and physical health.
A typical class consists of a warm up exercise followed by instruction and practice with everyone in class. Sometimes we get everyone involved in team based fencing games, and frequently practice our skills in a practical match where two students square off, and compete in a judged bout against each other. We laugh, play, and have a really good time, while learning all the fundamentals of Olympic style swordsmanship. We would love to have you join us.
Great for ages 8 and up.

Classes are held each Saturday from Noon to 1 pm.   Privates available upon request. Contact Ryan at 801-455-1747
