Class Attendance Policy

CLASS ATTENDANCE POLICY:

Students are expected to be on time and consistent in their class attendance, i.e., they are requested to attend the same class or classes on the same night as much as possible in the interests of continuity and scheduling.  However, they may make up missed classes on alternative days during the week at the discretion of the instructor of that class. This is to ensure the safety of students and instructors.  Students who are regular attendees of a particular class have priority if space in the class is limited.  If are going to be away for a month or more, upon your return, you will need to verify that there is still space available in your previous class.

The heart of the BCAF system is the training groups, which form a uniquely structured program developed by Maestro Holbrow which has continued to evolve over the last 35 years to meet the demands of the national level competition fencer.  Unlike most programs, the BCAF incorporates a flexible yet highly structured practice with drill partners designed to give the developing competitive fencer the experience and problem solving abilities to adapt to a wide variety of opponents who exhibit differences in height, reach, strength, speed, reaction time, opposite handedness and tactical characteristics.  This approach mirrors the realities of competitive fencing and trains the students to adapt to the variety of opponents they will encounter.
