No charge for this session! I've divided this free session into two parts.
The 1pm meetup is just for beginners. If you have had any experience fencing at all, please join the 2pm session ( http://www.meetup.com/nyc-fencing/events/157879692/ )
As of this edit, the 1pm session is full. If it's still full when you get here, you can sign up for the 2pm session, and we'll accommodate beginners there, too.
There is a limit to how many people we can fit in the room, and a lot of people have expressed interest. Thank you for your consideration.
Welcome, new beginners!
Please enjoy this chance to try this unique sport and meet some of the most friendly and encouraging people in New York City to fence with.
If you've never tried fencing before, we're happy to teach for the love of the sport.
Please wear shoes with non marking soles and clothes that allow you to move freely.(There are changing rooms available)
There will be a brief demonstration, followed by some basic lessons and a chance to try your hand
