En Garde! Corps-a-corps TMS Style

Our Forum presenter for Saturday, November 14, was TMS alum Tim Guarente, who gave students a tutorial on the history and practice of fencing. Students enjoyed not only sparring with one another, but also learning more about the history of fencing and what participants used to wear (Tim showed up wearing a doublet and plans to participate in the next Brattleboro Renaissance Fair). Students had the opportunity to try using a foil and practice their footwork. Students really enjoying learning about the evolution of swords, their history, as well as how to move with a foil and how it affects one's body.
