The beginning class is for individuals who have never fenced before or for people who have fenced before and are interested in starting again but need a refresher. If you have personal equipment and you already know how to fence, please purchase the "Valkyrie Club Membership" which gives you access to daily practice, Tuesday through Friday and auto-billed each month through either credit card or paypal.
