The new recruits... (January 2017)

The new recruits... (January 2017) 1

After taking part in fencing taster sessions at the end of the summer term last year, students were offered Go/Fence as an after school club that started in September.  Over the last 10 weeks the enthusiastic group learnt how to fence using the Go/Fence plastic foils and protective equipment.  They started with the basic stance and movement and progressed to more the technical skills that included hits, lunges, parry, disengage, circular parry of sixte and much more to allow them to fence against others as well as being able to referee each other in training. At the end of the course they also had the chance to put their new found skills to the test by competing in a two hour tournament against another school that had just completed the same course.  The team from St Anne's came out as strong winners in some very exciting and skilled matches, so a big well done done and congratulations to all of those who took part.
