Family activities are a great opportunity to step back, watch the children grow, learn more about their interests, likes and dislikes, share what’s on your mind and listen to everything they have to say. They bring all the members of the family together and strengthen ties between all. No matter where you stay, what you do, or how busy your life is, doing fun activities with your family has no substitute.

This class covers the traditions and rules of fencing, physical conditioning and beginning bladework and bouting. As it requires a rather high level of physical fitness, beginners should be prepared for a thorough work-out. It is also a serious sport, and as such is not for those interested in just "playing around with swords".
Date: Classes meet weekly at the for a minimum of 6 sessions, sometimes more
Location: Warren County Health and Humans Services Complex Café, 465 West 15th Street, Front Royal
Notes: Use of the required equipment is covered in the cost of the class. Classes are offered for those 10 years of age and older. Adults are welcomed as well, and parents are encouraged to participate with their child. It is a great way to stay fit!

Ongoing instruction and fencing continues year-round, and competitive tournaments take place throughout Virginia and surrounding states.
