Fencing has been described as the art of giving without receiving. It's one of just four sports which has never been absent from the Olympics. Modern foil fencing is based on the 18 century Italian and French school of small-sword fencing which in turn derives from rapier fencing. In this introductory course students will learn the basics of footwork, attack, defense, and strategy through drills, games, and bouts. Instructor: Ray Cote
