Fencing Training!

For our DisTIL Team the training continues! A few weekends ago they had their fencing training here at Windmill Farm. Here are Tom’s thoughts about thegreat weekend they had:

On the 14 th and 15 th January, we welcomed a brilliant instructor from British Fencing so that we could become qualified fencing coaches - that’s not putting up fences but duelling with Foils (not rolls of kitchen foil but types of sword!).

A small group from Caldicott Xperience in Milton Keynes joined us for the whole time which made for a good range of attendees. We learned how to deliver a beginners fencing session as well as improving our own skills. It was all really fun and yet also really hot! After 5 minutes of fencing you want to be taking off your mask.

We got to know the guys from the other group and we all took a liking to the instructor’s Tesla (sports car). In the evening we all went out for dinner and got to know the guys from the other centre a bit more. It was lovely to get a chance to be ‘credible Christians’ with them.

On the second day we had more practice at delivering a beginners session and more time to improve our own skills. We also got to have a go at a different type of fencing called Sabre.

All in all we had a lot of fun and all managed to pass the training course.
