LTF students also get to handle all of the equipment we use when fencing. Most fun of all, LTF students get a chance to Fence during their FIRST class! The purpose of this class is to answer most, if not all, questions that beginners have by introducing the basics of modern fencing and bringing it together by sparring at the end of the hour.
