Private Lessons

For the fencer who wants to improve more quickly and especially for those ready to start competing, private one-on-one lessons are essential.  In a private lesson, the coach focuses on mastering basic skills to build a solid foundation, and on developing new, more advanced skills to be practiced in group bouting and competitions. One short private lessons each week is included as part of a team membership, but an additional half-hour private lesson with a coach once a week is recommended, as well.
Charges for a private lessons are:
1. Beginners or Bronze Team members :$25 for 20 min.
2. Silver,Gold Teams or Adult members : $ 35 for 25 min.

Please talk to or e-mail the head coach, Tsanko Hantov, about private lessons.
