Foil, Epee, Saber
Foil and Epee
A limited number of exams will be offered. If you are interested in an exam, please email Paul Sise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each weapon has separate practical exams, so if you would like to be a 3 weapon Moniteur, you'll need to take one written exam but register for, pay for, and take three separate practical exams. If demand for Moniteur exams is high, priority will be given to getting each person
certified in one weapon rather than having only a couple of people take multiple exams.
