The greatest skill to be found
Erwin is our fastest addition to the coaching team. Liberal, lithe, and oh-so-lefthanded!
Do the thing!
Connor is fun & friendly, skilled & subtle. He can teach you how to make friends and stab them. Also good with animals.
Bend your Knees.
Stalwart of the club, professor, renaissance man; Peter embodies the truly classical fencer!
The fencing lesson with the foil gives the student the precision and quickness of the eye, the speed of the hand, the vigor of the calf, the length of breadth...It teaches [them] to search, to discover, to surprise, and to [thrust and hit the opponent]
