All fencers who were part of Luso Fencing Academy and were training once a week have the right to access our Legacy Plan. It includes a discount on the club's membership fee plus all the benefit of longer sessions and new club's events.
At Luso we are open to challenges and we always aim for the best performance. During our sessions kids and adults alike can find a challenge for their skill level. We not only work on fencing skills, but we run strength and conditioning sessions, we talk about alimentation and we invite experts to talk with fencers and parents.
Luso's fencers proudly compete both at national and international level. Every year a team is sent to Italy to compete in the Trofeo Citta` di Desio. Our fencers have represented England in different European competitions and we partner with other clubs to reach the best fencing possible.
HOW WE RUN A FENCING SESSION
WARM UP AND FOOTWORK
All our sessions always start with a complete warm up. If no competitions are scheduled close to the session, then strength and conditioning is introduced after the warm up. After that we spend a good amount of time doing footwork, extremely important for a serious fencer.
GROUP LESSON, ONE TO ONES, FREE FENCING
After footwork fencers usually put on their kit and start free fencing, while coaches give group lesson or one to ones. Free fencing is sometimes suspended and guided and handicap matches are fought instead. With those coaches work on tactics, strategy and specific skills.
Each membership guarantees a certain amount of one to one lessons. If fencers want more one to ones they can easily book using our ClubEvent app.
ONE HOUR OF DEDICATE WORK
The first hour of the Saturday session is exclusively dedicated to competitive fencers who train two times a week. Guided by our coaches fencers will use this hour to work on strength, conditioning, footwork and blade work depending on what they need most.
