Fencing Discovery Class with Olympian coach
17 February, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 18 February, 2017 @ 9:30 pmHK$300
Instead of boxing, cycling or heading to the gym, why not try something different with fencing? Hong Kong Fencing Master is holding a weekly Fencing Discovery Class with two-time Olympian Lau Kwok Kin to allow people to get a taste of how fencing allows you to train your body and mind. The introductory session is open to adults and runs every Friday and Saturday night from 8pm.
Hong Kong Fencing Master was established to promote fencing in Hong Kong for both children and adults. Through healthy rivalry and competition they aim to show how fencing teaches emotional control, courage and self-discipline. It offers a variety of coaching classes, as well as corporate events ranging from short taster sessions as part of a company activities day; full or half day sessions as a reward or team-building event or as a demonstration fight for a corporate entertainment evening.
Hong Kong Fencing Master Head Coach Lau Kwok Kin is the only fencing master (men’s foil) in Hong Kong who has twice competed in the Olympics. During his 25-year career he has represented in numerous competitions including the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and four Asian Games. He is the first Hongkonger to rank in the Top 16 in the World Fencing Championships.
