What Is Classical Fencing?
Classical fencing is a Western martial art that focuses on the practical application of the sword and its use in preparation for self-defense and personal combat. It differs from modern fencing in which the martial aspects of the weapon have been largely forgotten.
As a student of classical fencing, you will learn to use a sword as it was used in the 19th century when fencing was practiced as an art and science, as preparation for a duel, and as a recreational pasttime.
While the focus is on realism, all modern safety precautions are used; weapons are blunt and students wear protective gear (glove, jacket, and mask). Classical fencing stresses control, both of yourself and of your weapon, and it is this focus on self-discipline and awareness which makes it similar to Eastern martial arts.
Classes are held Wednesday evenings in Juno Beach, Thursday evenings in West Palm Beach (Greenacres, near Palm Springs, Lake Worth and Wellington), and Saturday mornings in Tequesta (just south of Hobe Sound and Stuart).
