Skills Presentations

What the Scottish Intermediates is all about.

The Scottish Intermediates is designed as a development competition. It's here to be a stepping stone towards competing in the Senior Open circuit. It's a place where you can learn some of the myriad of skill-sets that every competition, and the sport of fencing in general, needs to run. This year, we will be arranging introductory seminars in some of these skills which are not only fascinating by themselves, but can also compliment and improve your fencing. These will run in the lunch breaks each of each day, so you won't miss out on any fencing. If you have a special request for a topic for these seminars please let me know as soon as possible so I can arrange someone to come along to speak.
