Winter Seminar

Xian Niles of Niles' Fencing Academy will spend the weekend teaching us all about tournament broadsword fencing, and how it may differ from the way we currently train.


Each session will be different. Adults are welcome to attend one or both days.

From Coach Niles:

Competition Fencing 2.5

Howdy, this weekend is focused on the competitive aspects of historical fencing. The focus weapon of this workshop is the broadsword. We will learn what changes at the competitive level for this weapon! Understanding the nitty gritty of your sword! We will go through the steps it takes to get ready for an event, personalizing strategy, understanding personal shortcomings, maximizing advantages and changing your tactical framework.

Taking the steps toward your first competition can be difficult. We will go through an easy step by step process to getting the best experiences from events that you sign up for. Learn concepts like the 4 vs 1 in a match! 5 keys to put you 2 points up on the scoreboard ! Come and experience the N.A.F.A coaching method! When it comes to learning, the pen is often mightier than the sword! For this workshop remember to bring both!
