Fencing classes in Sparta

National Fencing Alliance-NFA is holding group and individual fencing lessons to children, youth, middle and high school, as well as college students and adult fencers at the Sparta P.A.L.

Students can learn fencing with all weapons: saber, foil, and epee.

The NFA at P.A.L. Sparta Fencing Program will teach footwork, drills and bouting techniques on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the PAL building located at 38 Station Road, Sparta.

According to the NFA website, fencing is a sport of speed, flexibility, coordination, reflexes, and tactics. Strength, concentration, a sense of observation, perseverance, and self-control are skills essential to fencers. Athletes must have good respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and be able to recover easily, as fencing involves a series of intense exertion.
