Sabre fencing

Sabre is the fastest and most spectacular discipline of the Olympic sport of fencing. Come and try at this year's Norway Summer Games!

Instructors from Kristiansand Fencing Club, Nicolai Amador (in the middle of the picture below) and August Broch will hold beginners' courses in sabre fencing for teenagers and adults (13 years and up), and Mini-Fence sessions for children up to 12 years of age.














In the beginners' courses, the participants will use normal equipment for sabre fencing and "metal sabres" while in the Mini-Fence sessions the children will use plastic equipment.














The Mini-Fence sessions are on a drop-in basis and will serve as a fun taster session for the children. The beginners' courses are held over 3 sesssions, with a team competition during the last session, where the course participants get a chance to fence sabre matches using competition equipment (as Nicolai is wearing in the photo) and electronic scoring devices.
