We took fencing in college and . . . we sucked at it. But we always thought it was so cool to pull down that beekeeper mask and thrust with that cool pointy sword. After collage we’d tried to kill each other with the cardboard left over from wrapping paper, but it’s just not the same. Luckily the other day we stumbled upon Brooklyn Fencing, which is located in the Gowanus / Carroll Gardens area. SWEET!
Classes are offered for all ages & the pricing seems reasonable too:
Kids: ONCE WEEKLY – $125 / 5 weeks
Junior: ONCE WEEKLY – $125 / 5 weeks
BEGINNER – $240 / 8 weeks
Also, some type of cool intro package: 3 group classes and 3 private lessons for $205 – a $40 savings! 7-17 only.
Spring Break and Summer camp is coming up too!
We apparently just missed one of their competition this past weekend, but more are coming in April. There is something so exacting about seeing people who are trying to poke one another for the most points. It’s almost silly.
Hopefully after we take classes we can fulfill our Princess Bride fantasy by grabbing a sword and screaming: “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Oh it’s going to be some much fun. Sqwee!
