For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Olympic fencing has been around since the first modern Olympic games in 1896, and the sport has been evolving ever since. In modern times, many epic fights in action/adventure movies utilize fencing techniques. UW-Marshfield/Wood County Office of Continuing Education has offered a fencing class since 2005, and its next session starts April 5 at 6:30 p.m.
Continuing Education’s fencing class is available to anyone 15 years old and older.
The fencing course offers three lessons and three practice dates. This class is open to beginners and to those with previous experience. Students can use their own equipment or purchase a starter set after the first session.
Those new to the sport will learn the footwork and bladework for beginner foil fencing. Once the basics are learned, you will learn advanced moves, and strategy.
Whether you want to learn to fence for fun, or if you want to become a competitive fencer, this class will work for you. Register by calling Continuing Education at 715-389-6520 or by visiting marshfield.uwc.edu/continuing-ed.
