Fencing is an individual sport that requires one on one instructions.
It can be learned in a group class setting, where students practice challenging each other. But in order to refine and sharpen the fencer’s technical abilities, private lessons are strongly encouraged. At Avant-Garde Fencers Club coaches accord fencers their complete attention in 20 minutes private lessons working in perfecting handwork, footwork and agility skills.
AGFC members may schedule weekly reoccurring private lessons and qualify for prepaid private lesson discounts.

Cancellation Policy: A reserved private lesson must be cancelled the night before the appointment in order to be credited.
Warm-up Tip: Arrive early to give yourself ample time to dress, stretch and warm up before your private lesson. It is important to prepare your mind and body in order to optimize your private lesson.
Post-workout assisted stretching routines improve flexibility and performance.
As part of a cool down routine assisted stretching should be used after each athletic performance. At AGFC fencers can use stretching with the help of a personal trainer. A 20 minutes individual session involves a slow, gradual and controlled elongation of the muscle through the full range of motion. Flexibility prevents injuries, promotes relaxation and keeps the body feeling loose and agile.
