Hi, I would just like to ask, if a fencer is about to start fencing in a competition, and the referee checks that either the blade or the wire is not working properly, and the fencer needs to change it, does the referee give a yellow card? :?:

Hi, I chanced upon a nice Holiday Fencing Program from Absolute Fencing and would like to share with you guys here. It costs $250 for 8 sessions and the details can be found here (http://www.absolutefencing.com.sg/wordpress/?p=1931). Looks rather reasonable to me. Do check it out.

i am thinking of enrolling my daughter in this for the holiday. we have seen some fencing action previously and the girl is quite keen. but prices are a big deterrence in those seemingly well-established schools. just a question - is there a minimum age to sign up for this holiday program? should my girl also be rather athletic to start this program (she does not have much sporting background!)?

If I am not wrong the program says age 7-12.

Ideally, Marine Parade or Tampines area. I think Z Fencing used to have a branch at Parkway Parade. Just surprised that there seems to be none at all in the east :frustrated:

We started our fencing program at Modern Fencing Sports Club last year and absolutely love it. It is a lot of fun not just for our 6-year-old son, but for us, adults, as observers. A big saving that we didn't have to buy the fencing equipment, everything is provided by the club, and the classes last nearly 2 hours. Not much info on the website though, try this link
