Activity details

A fun series of videos, creative challenges and games to introduce fencing to young people.

ITriedFencing is a new series of fun videos that introduce fencing to young people through games and creative challenges. The videos feature Ben Peggs, Rob Bruniges and Lucy Johnson and are aimed at young people who may have never tried fencing before.

Filmed during lockdown, the videos introduce the basic moves of fencing including On Guard, steps forward and back, and the lunge. Creative challenges are interspersed with the lessons, showing how to make a sword, lunging target pad and swing-ball from items in the home.

The series uses the ‘fun’ model of engagement, with games including a dance challenge and lunging competition. The set of eight videos culminates in a pendulum challenge presented by Ben Peggs where all the moves and equipment are brought together.
