Training for Kids

Sabre is a great sport for kids of all ages

Sabre fencing is a unique way for kids to build fitness, focus, confidence and leadership. It combines elements of discipline-based individual martial arts with collaborative group training. We work hard to make sure our junior fencers form cohesive and friendly training groups where everyone improves and enjoys the game together, whether they are purely playing for fun or want to go out into the world and win stuff.

You can read an in-depth guide to our kids’ training program on our blog.

It’s also worth noting that our instructors have considerable experience working with kids with ASD and ADHD in both group classes and individual lessons: if you would like to chat with us about our support for neurodiverse students, please call Frances on 0421 460 713.
