Fencing

The historical sport of Fencing is alive and well at OCSC! 

Competitive fencing is one of the five events that has been featured at every modern Olympic Games (the others include track and field, cycling, swimming & gymnastics).  The fine art of fencing uses swords (foils) to teach agility, flexibility, balance and mental toughness. 

Think of it as Physical Chess, that develops a student’s mind and body!
Our hour and a half co-ed class for children age 7+ is one of the few in the area!
