Zoom only which includes access to all the zoom classes: workout, footwork, and drilling for epee and saber. This program is recommended for beginners. They can explore both weapons.
Team fencers make more of a time commitment and usually, they have already narrowed their focus to a specific weapon and plan on competing in tournaments. Team fencers are expected to attend all the instructor-led classes on zoom, two one hour instructor-led at the salle, and register to one open fencing pod.
