Recent Competitions and Results
Our Spring beginners course finished with a mini competition where our newly qualified beginners could test their fencing skills against one-another. The winner was Juliette, who produced an excellent victory against Simon in the final to win 5-3. She showed great composure, and used excellent parries to defend against Simon’s persistent attacks. Well done to everyone who completed the course, and competition. We hope that you enjoyed the experience, and look forward to welcoming you as members soon.
