Fencing for Ages 8-16 & 16 - Adult

Fee $99.00         WEDNESDAY CLASSES STARTING SEPT 13TH - NOVEMBER 1ST  7:15-815

Fencing is a sport of combat that originally started as practice for dueling with swords. Since that time it has grown into a modern sport while maintaining those virtues that made it great; honor, valor, grace. Master Bloch’s fencing program is designed with safety and learning in mind. In our Salle (school) beginners are not thrown in with one another and told to “fence”. Rather, the classic French footwork and blade work is emphasized first. In this way we assure not only the safety of our students but, by laying a good foundation of learning, all students have the ability to become great fencers.
Learn the fine points of fencing.  Students, please bring a water bottle, sneakers and comfortable clothing. 

Dates:
Ages 8-16 Dates 7:15-8:15:

(B) Wednesdays, September 13th - November 1st.

Brimfield Senior Center
1st Congregational Church
20 Main Street
Brimfield, MA 01010

...there is one thing that we know will happen to all of us, sooner or later we will die.  This is a truth that we all must come to grips with in the course of our life.  And while it may seem morbid to discuss this reality, most people find it incredibly freeing.  As we discuss our impending death, we also are forced to consider our life and what it means to live.  Please come join us to watch the documentary "Being Mortal", to discuss end of life issues, and to receive vital paperwork to help with planning.
The program will be facilitated by Eva Pittsinger and Rev. Dawn Adams.  There is no cost for this program but please RSVP so that we know how many people to prepare for.  Drop-ins, though, are welcome.  A light lunch will be provided at noon.
