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.

We run full-day training camps every school holidays.

To book, contact us at sales@sydneysabre.com or call Frances on 0421 460 713.

Regular Kids Classes

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.

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 11am
  • Ages 14-17 Saturdays 12pm
  • All ages Wednesdays 5pm

All classes run for one hour of formal instruction, and include a session pass for the rest of the day so that the students can stay afterwards and fence until closing time (6pm on Saturdays, 10pm on weeknights).

COVID-19 update:

Protective equipment is available for rental. We also have gear for sale. Scoring equipment (body cords, mask wires, lamés, and sabres) is included with all of our passes.

To book, contact us at sales@sydneysabre.com or call Frances on 0421 460 713.

Private lessons

Younger fencers are welcome! Private lessons are the best way to start for kids 6 years and up, until they are old enough to join one of the group classes, or when they start competing in state tournaments and above.
