Is primary sword fencing safe?
The simple answer is yes!
Long gone are the days when two duelists faced off at dawn with real swords!
Today we fencing is very much a sport and as a coach, teacher and company director I take the responsibility of safety very serious indeed with the following approach that has led to not ONE SINGLE ACCIDENT in 20 years of coaching primary fencing:
CLEAR RULES FOR THE PUPILS such as only picking up a sword when fencing and not waving them around in between matches
SAFE EQUIPMENT designed for primary age pupils by a professional fencing kit supplier as a 'soft' introduction to the sport
EXCELLENT COACHING AND SUPERVISION that comes from my years of experience both as a coach and primary teacher
FULL INSURANCE AND DBS CLEARANCE for your further reassurance
