Using a series of familar games ("Stuck-in-the-mud", "Grandma's Footsteps", etc) and specific fencing exercises, the children learn the basics of attack/defence and movement
The kit is a specially designed foil and fencing mask in brightly coloured plastic. This means that while the fencers experience the "reality" of fencing, safety is not compromised and the children do not need the bulky protective equipment that standard fencing requires. Not only does this hasten the kitting up process (resulting in more time fencing!) but also avoids the potential over-heating problem that youngsters (with their smaller heat-dissipating surface area) often experience in sport.
