Under 8?

Steel fencing isn’t for under 8s. The blades are heavy, and the kit can be too uncomfortable. 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.
