Individual Fencing Lessons

In accordance with the opening up of fencing training I am now able to offer individual fencing lessons for all ages again.  The usual venue of the Park Centre which we used is not as yet available so, just to get things going, I have booked Frecheville Community Centre, Churchdale Rd, Sheffield S12 4XT for 1:00pm till 5:00pm on Sundays.  I can add more dates and also it seems Saturdays may be available.  I like this venue and was able to give Iris (as we are a ‘household’) a few lessons there earlier this year, here are videos of 2 lessons – Fencing Lesson, Adam & Iris – 1 and  Fencing Lesson, Adam & Iris – 2 .  There are differences in prices and I will be charging £50 for 1 hour and £25 for ½ hour.  If you would like to arrange lessons, get in touch and let me know.  Also, anyone who wants to fence in addition to having a lesson can do this.

Current dates for lessons are –

6th June, 20th June, 4th July, 18th July

Adam coaching Husayn Rosowsky, the 2011 British Foil Champion and Olympian at the Park Centre.

Those who are coming for lessons should arrive with sufficient time to warm up and prepare.  Also, if anyone fails to turn up for a lesson or cancels at short notice, they are expected to pay for the lesson.  Many fencers who have received regular lessons from Adam Blight have achieved National and International success and these lessons have been essential to achieving this.

Here are a selection of individual lessons with myself.

1 – A short fencing lesson with a variety of exercises with Husayn Rosowsky.  This and the other lessons with Husayn were filmed in September 2011, shortly after Husayn had returned from fencing in the World Student Games in China where he came 6th eventually losing 15-7 to Lei, who was world number one at the time.  I started coaching Husayn when he was 7 he is now in London studying maths at Greenwich University and training with the Olympic Pathway Program.  I must admit that there were moments when Husayn and myself were having a bit of fun with the exercises.

2 – In this lesson with Husayn Roswsky, the actions begin with an octave parry and the phrase is extended with different unannounced actions.

3 – This is a ‘choice of action’ routine – Husayn chooses between 1) sixte disengage. 2) sixte one-two 3)sixte disengage followed by a second intention counter-riposte. This routine was originally shown to me by my coaching colleague Phil Myers. The combination of a simple, a compound and a second intention action makes for a good exercise which develops a fencers technical and tactical skills.

4 – In this exercise a continuity hitting sequence is practiced.

5 – A short epee lesson with Joe Littler showing a range of exercises.  Joe has fenced for Britain in the Cadet (Under 17) squad, including in the European Cadet Championships.

6 – In this exercise, joe is instructed to hit the hand as the response to every action, the actions are unanounced and varied.

7 – In this routine, all offensive and defensive actions involve circles.

      Hi Suzannah

      You may have attempted to edit the program on the website, which you can’t actually do, I have to log in to do that. If you email me the dates you want then I can add them to the program.

      Happy New Year
