KINS 1906 - Fencing

Fencing is one of only four sports to be included in every modern Olympic Games, and in this course, students will learn the basics of the sport. The course will begin with footwork, continue with bladework, and end with bout strategy. This course employs the foil, a weapon whose skills transfer easily to the other two fencing weapons (épée and saber). Additionally, as the students learn the rules and the concept of right-of-way, they will begin to judge bouts. In addition to a physical component, the class includes an academic component.
