Escrime / Fencing with Paul Lowen
“I have been fencing for about fifty years. In that time, I have been County Captain and have fenced for the South East of England. More recently I have fenced for the British Veterans Team in the World and European Championships with varying success, my best result was coming third in the Worlds about seven years ago.
I have been British Fencing grade 2 qualified coach for over ten years and coach at a number of West London schools and two local clubs.
The course would use plastic swords and equipment and would be aimed at providing the children with a basic idea of the sport of fencing. It will include learning the basic strokes and understand the concepts behind foil fencing. I would hope that after two or three weeks the children will have the skills to have simple fencing fights.”
