  • Fencing / Fencing for Progress

    Kids don’t have to eschew their love of fencing in order to keep a safe distance! Since so many aspects of mastery as a fencer focus on the athlete’s form and technique, the camera is a great opportunity for teach kids to learn and internalize good form, as in front of a mirror. In remote fencing class, instead of practicing actions in the traditional format wearing full equipment, exercises and activities have been adapted to bring about similar responses, but by using unusual materials and similar but altered cuing formats. Kids use items commonly found around the home for training during class – like, a wooden spoon from the kitchen makes an excellent substitute practice weapon. Balled up socks make great cones, add a handful of dried beans or rice to one of them and it becomes a bean bag! We at Fencing for Progress! invite you to join us this summer for more fun and intrigue at camp developing the reflexes, focus and personal skill set which are the foundation of any fencer’s arsenal. See you at class!

Will she turn left and go home or will she turn right and go to the park? WIll he eat that magical cookie or take a ride on that unicorn? As we read aloud, we’ll vote to decide what our character will do and how our story will take shape. We’ll also take breaks to practice step-by-step drawing tutorials, learning to draw fun things from quick,cute cartoons to intricate, more complicated subjects. We’ll even learn how to craft some recycling into fun, new upcycled creations! Students are not required to read aloud and are encouraged to draw and craft while other students are reading. We’ll take frequent breaks so that everyone can share their work with others and discuss what types of crafts they’d like to work on and discuss how they feel about the development of our story.
