Winter Workshops

We have two great workshops coming up the beginning of January. We have finally been able to get Coach Aaron Kandlik to come out in the winter and share his knowledge with us again. Coach Kandlik is is a Level 4 Coach in all 3 weapons from the USFA Coaches College, a certified Prevost d’Armes and a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. ¬†Aaron has coached for Vassar College, Northwest Fencing Center and currently is coaching for Oregon Fencing Alliance which is home to Olympic Fencers Mariel Zagunis and Becca Ward.

Now about the workshops… The first will be on January 1st, a Youth workshop, where Coach Kandlik will help fill in the gaps in your fencing. This night will not be all fencing as we also plan to play a lot of fun games too. We like to think of it as a Parents Date night, something every parent needs after the holidays. (There will also be pizza for the kids)

There will also be a Teen Workshop on Saturday January 2nd. This will be a full day of fencing instruction. Coach Kandlik will use the most modern techniques and gear this workshop toward the specific needs of the students who attend.
