This class is for pre-schoolers and kindergarteners who love to leap over furniture at home and pretend to be Jedi Knights! Using plastic foils, practice vests, and light-weight masks, the structured fencing class teaches a new skill every week, with repetition of skills emphasized. Fencing games are incorporated into each lesson. This fun class meets once a week for 45 minutes. Leave the light sabres at home
