The most effective way of developing the skills and requirements of fencing is through individual lessons with a coach. In order to provide for this, Adam Blight in conjunction with Sheffield Buccaneers Fencing Club, offers the opportunity for fencers to receive individual fencing lessons and train at weekends from 9.00am till 1.00pm at the Park Centre, Duke Street, Sheffield S2 5QP. This is directly behind the Park Library Centre on City Road, the building has a very tall brick chimney which can be seen from a distance and the entrance to the sports hall is via the fire doors on the Coates Street side of the centre.
If you wish to arrange individual lessons, download this Program of Fencing Lesson Dates and Times, get in touch and let me know your preferred dates and times from those available by email, phone or at club sessions. Future dates from January will be announced and If other dates are required, this can possibly be arranged. The costs of lessons are – £25 for ½ hour, £50.00 for 1 hour.

The venue is also available for those who wish to fence. If you wish to fence, you should let Adam know in order that electric equipment can be brought. Those who are coming for lessons should arrive with sufficient time to warm up and prepare. Also, if anyone fails to turn up for a lesson or cancels at short notice, they are expected to pay for the lesson. Many fencers who have received regular lessons from myself have achieved National and International success including many National Champions, and major international results and these lessons have been essential to achieving this.
