Clinics and Credentials pages updated

The Clinics page is updated to reflect the new Sabre course starting at the end of September.  The Credentials page has been updated too clarify the new Levels 1, 2, and 2, and to start a list of the 2020 credential holders.

Level 1 Epee Course by Zoom well underway

Changes in club openings and other factors shifted us from a Tuesday-Thursday schedule to Saturday at 1pm Eastern.  The same presentation for Saturday is repeated at 7pm Eastern on Thursday nights.  Attendees can come to either or to both sessions. 

Level 1 Epee Course Schedule Change 11 July

Due to conflicts for some of our students as a result of club openings, we have rescheduled the course to start Saturday 11 July at 1:00 pm Eastern, with 5 sessions of 1 hour each, ending 8 August.

Level 1 Epee Course by Zoom starts 7 July 2020.

Our new Level 1 Course is designed as an introduction to one of the three weapons as described by Mangiarotti and Cerchiari in La Vera Scherma.  It is suitable for experienced fencers and coaches interested in the evolution of Italian fencing, and is presented by Zoom.  This is not a bladework or footwork course, although we will discuss and demonstrate technique to the extent that limited facilities and Zoon allow.  The course consists of ten 30 minute sessions.  If you are interested go to our Clinics page and preregister.
