The best age to start fencing

 

For a long time it has been normal to begin fencing from the age of 10-12, although in Italy, for example, children start as early as 6-7 years old.

We believe that 6-7 years old is the earliest time for a child to truly begin their fencing education.

At this age, children start to better understand the concepts of learning.

Classes for 6-7-year-olds are more about having fun and instilling interest in fencing, but they can also provide a solid foundation for them to continue fencing as they get older. 

The best way to find out is to bring your little fencer down to the club and see how they perform with other kids of their age.

This is the way we go at Modern Fencing Academy!

Fencers learn weapon-specific fencing skills such as bladework and footwork, prepare and take part in their first U10/U12 competitions in Singapore and in the region.
