Fencing with Vladimir Ostatnigrosh

Every Tuesday you will find 14 students working with Coach Vladimir to learn the history and elemental techniques of three weapons used in the modern sport of fencing: foil, epee, and sabre.
This beginning class in fencing focuses on developing a strong foundation in basic fencing while developing responsible athletes. Each bout begins with the students greeting their opponent appropriately and ends with a handshake. As you can see in the picture, students wear protective gear while being coached by a professional Ukrainian coach. Our students hope to continue learning and compete one day in the newest sport to be adopted at our school.
