FREE FENCING LESSONS at the N.Y.C. Public Library

Posted by goldmanacus on March 26, 2010 at 11:38 AM

I would like to announce that FREE FENCING LESSONS will be given every Friday beginning April 9th until June 25th from 1pm -2pm at the New York Public Library.

·        The New York Public Library, long home to readers and researchers, is about to become the city's épée-center for fencing. New Yorkers eager to take a stab at the Olympic sport can grab a mask and swing a saber beginning April 9, when free lessons start outside the library's famed Fifth Ave. entrance. The hour-long classes, starting at 1 p.m., will continue every Friday through June 25.

·        The original concept grew out of the city's pursuit of the 2012 Summer Games, when the thrust-and-parry crowd was invited for a demonstration near the library's twin marble lions. The class is presented in partnership of Merrick Fencing and the Manhattan Fencing Center, with its instructors providing the necessary equipment for beginners.

·        Fencer Tim Morehouse, an Olympic silver medalist, already was plugging the event on his blog.
