Beginner / Intermediate Epee Course

Monday evenings @ Chilton Saint James School in Lower Hutt from 13 March 2023

Hutt Valley Fencing Class invites you to join a 12-week epee course on Monday evenings at Chilton Saint James School in Lower Hutt. Group epee lessons will start after warm-up and footwork from around 7:30pm.

The course starts with the basics of en garde and progresses through preparation, offensive and defensive actions. If you have already done some epee it is a good chance to go back over what you know and fine-tune your actions and knowledge.

The course is part of Simon’s Oceania Fencing Masters’ Academy (OFMA) Online Level 1 Epee Coaching Course. The course will be supplemented with feedback and support offered by OFMA Coaches Leon Thomas, Dave Barson, Martin Brill and Paul Crook and GFM Coaches Christophe Duclos and Pierre-Olivier Bontems. As part of the course, you need to agree to be videoed. These videos will be shared with the OFMA coaches as part of Simon’s assessment. This feedback will be shared where possible.

We recommend participants wear fencing whites, chest protectors, and boxes where appropriate.

To register please contact HVFC Club <>, including if you need to borrow gear and if so if you are left or right-handed.
