I coach all three weapons at Bramhall Sword Club (http://www.bramhallswordclub.co.uk) every Friday evening throughout the year. Group junior sessions take place from 7pm until 8pm. The senior session and 121 coaching lessons are between 8pm and 10pm.
BSC operates a single annual membership and there is no weekly fee to attend the sessions at the club. Membership includes coaching on both a group and individual basis. The annual fees are as follows:
Seniors (over 20) £175;
Juniors (13-20 years) £150;
Musketeers (12 years and under) £125.
The first 4 sessions at the club are free to anyone attending, and we have kit available for beginner fencers or people wanting to try the sport. Enquiries should be emailed to [email protected]
I also provide 121 lessons and tuition in Foil and Epee at The Manchester Fencing Centre (TMFC) on Wednesday evenings between 7pm and 9pm. Enquiries can be made with reception at TMFC.
