Event description

Description

SAVE THE DATE: January 22 - 27, 2018

Calling all adults age 18+!
All Sport One City is a week-long event offering free, no-pressure introductory sport and fitness classes!
Registration opens on January 1, noon.

Fencing is a creative sport enabling free development of the personality. It offers no ready recipes. It only provides the notes, while the athlete himself has to compose music.The sport of fencing is fast and athletic, a far cry from the choreographed bouts you see on film or on the stage. Instead of swinging from a chandelier or leaping from balconies, you will see two fencers performing an intense dance on a six-feet-by-40-feet strip. The movement is so fast the touches are scored electrically - more like Star Wars than Errol Flynn.

This is an introductory fencing session; learn the basics of en garde, advance and retreat, lunge, and have some fun bouting.
