Although it is unfortunate that the All-American Fencing Academy, along with all indoor fitness facilities, must remain closed during Phase 2, now pushed to Phase 3 (5 weeks from the start of Phase 2). And although I would have enjoyed the opportunity to at least provide 1 on 1 lessons or small group lessons, it provides us and you with a better opportunity be prepared to return the sport we love and enjoy.
I did have many mitigation already in place, but this will give me time to provide more sanitizing stations for our equipment and additional time to prepare. We know our families and fencers will are responsible and dependable to help us provide a safe environment for everyone. And as I consider everyone at All-American my family, the movement to Phase 3 does provide me with some sense of ease knowing that I would not be providing any unnecessary risk to my extended family.
So we will NOT be able to open this weekend or soft open next week.
We will continue to provide our training videos and perhaps we will include a live Zoom training to change things up in June. Again, if you have any suggestions about what you want to see in the video, we will try to add them.
And don’t forget! Absolute Fencing Gear still has a deal for a free fencing glove with a purchase of a fencing mask! The $59 fencing mask is a good one, and the same one we have in class.
