Course Content (Syllabus)
The students are specialized in the specific position the body needs to fence. This means, the sword(sabre) and its moves, the space that is needed to fence, and all while wearing a mask, too. A lot of practising all these skills in a personal level, but mostly in pairs is the main target. This is completed when a student can act as a real fencer on the stage. The most usefull part of the lesson is that it lets the student improvise and realise what is he/she able to do on stage, until that time.
