Adult Beginners

If you haven’t fenced before, why not check out our training page to see when our Adult Beginners classes run.  These sessions are free for members or £10 per session for non-members.

Junior Beginners

For younger fencers, we run a structured beginners/improvers technical session twice a week which is free for Salle Holyrood Members to take part in.  Non-members are welcome to attend for £10 per session. Check our training page for current days/times.

Under 8?

If you are under 8  and haven’t fenced before, we would recommend looking at Fencing Fun classes to give you the best grounding in the skills of the sport.  Fencing Fun use plastic fencing equipment which requires less protective clothing and is lighter, making it much quicker to learn with.
