Attended: Beginner Fencing Class

Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The training was good; the instructors were patient and shared not only the techniques but also the history and rational behind things.

Attended: Beginner Fencing Class

This was the best thing I've done in a long time. After the first class, I had to keep taking classes at this school. The maestros are fantastic, the community is welcoming, and the instruction is completely individualized -- each student is taught one-on-one. I was the only female student as well as the only complete newbie who attended any of the weeks that I was there, but I never felt weird or out-of-place or anything besides welcome. Even though I don't live in New York, I'm trying to work out a way to travel up from D.C. regularly just to continue taking lessons here.
