Musketeers Club Overview
This is the Academy Musketeers Club for children in London.
The Musketeers Club is the Academy's premier club for children age 6-12. Here
you will find information on classes for children to start fencing
and information on club training sessions.
The Musketeers Club is one of the largest clubs for
children and is counted amongst the elite clubs in the UK. The club
regularly produces medallists, Champions and National winners.
The main aim of the club is to teach children and train
them to acquire quality skills. Not just simply play on the bits
of talent that children already have. The sessions are no doubt hard
work but are also made challenging, achievable and fun.
The club has four levels plus Level 0 which is the
foundation level. All levels are taught separately and are well structured.
Children get a programme to help them graduate from one level
to the next. This will instil a sense of achievement that makes
them proud of themselves.
Children can start from the age of six. Girls and Boys
have equal opportunities. In fact our girls' squad is currently slightly
larger than the boys.
Beginners who are joining us for the first time should be aware that they will not be immediately given swords (foils) and kitted up to hit each other. First they need to build the necessary skills and acquire the required strength and resilience before they can wield the sword (foil). From then after it is full kit on and practice with sword (foil) with electrics in every session.
Real fencing is an intellectual game of skill and patience. Do not expect fast and furious slashing, movie-style classes.
