Preparing For Your Free Trial Class

If you’ve never fenced before, get ready to sweat. Come wearing athletic clothing and closed toe shoes with good grip. Also make sure to bring plenty of water.

We recommend arriving at our fencing school early, because you’ll need to sign a waiver before you jump into the sport. It’s also a good idea to stretch out beforehand, especially your legs, back, and core.

Other than that, just be ready to have tons of fun!

What You’ll Learn

Swordplay LA fencing school is all about making fencing accessible for beginners, so don’t worry about getting overwhelmed. You’ll just learn the basics during your first fencing class, specifically:

  • En garde position, or the fighting stance

  • Basic footwork, or how to move around while fencing

  • Basic offense and defense, or how to hit your opponent and avoid getting hit

You’ll even get to fence at the end of your lesson so you can put your new skills to good use!

If you have fenced before, your instructor will use your free trial fencing class to assess your current skill level so they know how best to train you over the coming months.
