me at FVFA@comcast.net if you'd like to be notified when enrollment opens for future beginner sessions (Tuesday or Saturday). At FVFA we have one of the best fencing programs in the State of Connecticut, so let
me assure you it's worth the wait for a new session--it's better to wait for a top-notch class than not waiting and catching
bad habits elsewhere in the meantime. A list of all the programs
offered at FVFA (for all ages) can be found here! Get started ASAP!
