Athletes will experience intensive immersion in fencing, honing specific techniques, strategies and tactics, in numerous bouts and tournaments and engaging in mental training for success.

Each athlete will be challenged to think critically and develop approaches and methods to improve their own fencing performance and empower themselves in national competition and their training afterwards.
