The Bristol Fencing Academy provides structured training in sabre fencing for junior fencers. Our aim is to teach fencing the right way. Good technique, fitness, wits and courage.

Character is a part of fencing and the Academy provides an environment of courtesy and kindness as well as competitive excellence: the two are not incompatible.

Instruction is delivered at beginner and development levels, with training schedules appropriate to each. Small group sizes ensure individual attention; every student of the Bristol Fencing Academy is provided with their own Fencing Journal which is completed on a regular basis by the fencer, together with their coach, to set goals and track progress.

A standard session may contain any/all of the following elements:

  • Warm-up games

  • Agility training

  • Footwork & foundations

  • Skills, drills & tactics

  • Video study and group discussion

  • Fencing (elecric and steam) with coach feedback

  • Individual video diagnostics

  • History of Fencing

  • Personal development & goal planning

Any junior fencer is welcome to attend and enroll in our programmes. Fees are £30 per calendar month (by standing order only). This includes tuition, use of kit, grade badges & certificates & refreshments. Cancel at any time. Concessional rates are available inc. a discount for siblings - please enquire. Students are encouraged to attend Junior Eagles Club on a Saturday morning at no additional cost.
