What does a sabre fencer have in common with a tiger?

This August, we're launching a series of intensive half-day workshops for sabre fencers of all levels, from recreational to elite, to help you optimise your movements for better performance and reduced injury. In this first session, we'll be focusing on stance and footwork to build better agility and acceleration while cutting down on impact and wear. 

The session will be run by John Chow, chief instructor of Sydney Sabre and general massive nerd, who has been consulting with coaches, athletes and other experts around the world to try and figure out how sabre fencers *really* move.

Registration $50

He's back!
