Intro to Backyard Fencing

with Emily Loder


We’re talking about learning to sword fight like in the 80s movie “The Princess Bride!” Join us for a fun introduction to collegiate fencing. Construct your own sword of PVC pipe in the first class and learn the basic moves of how to defend and attack. Open to all skill levels for some backyard fun! No class 11/26.

Disclaimer: NO ACTUAL SWORDS WILL BE USED IN THIS CLASS, no fences will be built either.

Required: Bring proof of registration. Padded helmet (which covers ears, preferably), safety goggles (if helmet does not have a face shield), work or garden gloves. If desired, chest protectors can be purchased from Amazon for approx. $20-$40.

Emily Loder excelled at collegiate fencing at Texas A & M University and participated in three national tournaments while fencing three different weapons!
