FENCING CLASS PREPARATION


Please plan to arrive at the start of each class in the proper attire for fencing. Proper gear is an important safety consideration in fencing. Failure to wear appropriate clothing to class may, unfortunately, result in a fencer being prevented from practicing for that day. The following are requirements for fencing practices.

Pants - should be long pants with no knees or ankles exposed. Athletic pants are strongly recommended, but regular pants are acceptable. No shorts!!! While fencing is one of the safest sports, please remember that we are using metal fencing swords to poke at each other and scrapes are possible. Pants reduce this risk significantly.

Shoes - must be closed-toed. Running shoes are preferable. Bare feet, flip flops, sandals, and Crocs are not suitable for fencing. These type of shoes pose a tripping hazard and make it impossible to correctly practice proper fencing footwork.
