|Learn Olympic Fencing in Shoreline|
Get Strong First is located at 19022 Aurora Ave N, Suite B, Shoreline 98133, located on north side of building. 206-542-4833.
The courses, taught by Tony Aspinall, are for beginning and intermediate fencers of all ages. Participants can expect to learn the basics of fencing through games and drills and will proceed from blade work to introductory priority and bouts.
Fencing is one of the oldest and safest Olympic sports. Coordination, speed, and agility are just a few of the qualities this sport requires of its participants. Successful fencers must be capable of mounting powerful driving attacks as well as making subtle and crafty defenses. In a sport often called physical chess, intellect and brawn are of equal importance. A good fencer must be focused and clever enough to conceive and execute calculated moves in fractions of a second.
Tony is a Shoreline native and has previously taught fencing at the YMCA and Washington State University. He was the WSU fencing club president for two years and competed at Div II and Div III nationals in 2010.
