Continuing to develop the fundamentals introduced in Beginner I, this class will put theory into practice by emphasizing bouting. While some new elements will be introduced, the focus will be on improvement through playing. The rules of judging a bout will be explained, and students will assist the instructor in judging. Bouts will be rotated to give each student as much opportunity to play as possible, and to face a variety of opponents. Students repeating this course will continue to hone their skills. For students who are interested, Mr. Weaver will introduce the epee, which employs a different set of rules. Mr. Weaver has been teaching fencing for Friday Arts and Fun since the fall of 2006. He is a Collection Development Librarian at Liberty University.
