Virtual Fencing

Due to COVID-19 the ESA ESTEC premises is closed for our sport. Fencing training has resumed in the gym of the Leo Kanner School in Oegstgeest as a temporary solution until May 2021 when ESTEC is hopefully available again.. Now about 20 fencers can train, get lessons and fence bouts. In addition, the club can still offer you and your family some virtual support with the video’s below.

Our own fencing maestro Rudolph Francis has developed a series of short videos to remain fit and keep working on the basic principles and techniques in your own home. In this way we’ll help you to remain focussed on your fencing and be ready when normal training sessions resume. Feel free to do the exercises alone, or, even more fun, with your friends or family members. Click on a lesson for that specific video.
