Safety is paramount. Always wear appropriate training gear for the activity at hand. Masks must be worn when crossing blades. Long pants (but not jeans!) are required for drills and bouting. Underarm protectors must be worn under fencing jackets.
Respect yourself. Give your complete attention to the task in front of you. Work on the actions that you are not good at. Use your time wisely and make the most of your training sessions.
Respect your teammates. When paired for drills, do your best to be a good training partner. When bouting, work to make each other better. Do not waste their time by giving low effort. Give positive feedback and constructive criticism.
Respect your coaches. Listen to their feedback and correction. Be respectful of their knowledge and authority.
Respect the physical space of your club. Keep fencing bags on storage shelves. Put shared gear back on the hangers and racks. Clean up any messes that you find regardless of who made them.
Work purposefully. Accept that errors are part of the learning process, but attempt to eliminate them. If you are not making errors, you aren’t trying hard enough. If you are making too many errors, you are attempting things you aren’t ready for.
Be on time. Come to the fencing center well in advance of your scheduled class or lesson. A proper warm up routine should take at minimum 15 minutes and should be completed prior to the start of class.
