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 squads where everyone improves 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.

How our classes work

Our kids’ classes are designed to be a fun, supportive way to learn core movement skills, fencing rules and techniques by working with our professional instructors. Our training for different age groups uses customised games and equipment to make sure every student can learn crucial skills and enjoy each session.

We also encourage our students to act as mentors for their younger classmates to pass on their skills and experience and begin learning the basics of coaching: many of our assistant instructors are also members of our junior competitive team.

COVID-19 update: Equipment is available for rental for $30 per week for a mask, glove and jacket. Please take your gear home with you between sessions.

If you’d like to watch a class, you’re very welcome to drop in during any session and have a chat with our instructors.

Here’s our current class timetable:

  • Ages 8-10 Saturday 10am
  • Ages 11-13 Saturday 11:30am
  • Ages 14-17 Saturdays 1pm
  • All classes run for one hour.
