FSA's Tune up Camps are for the serious fencer getting ready to dominate a tournament. The goal of these camps is to strengthen the fencer's ability in a specific area. Footwork and distance are incorporated as part of training specific aspects. For example questions like, How do I quickly analyze what is working in the bout and what is not? What is my best touch conversion ratio? Where is this bout headed and how do I win it? will be addressed in these camps. Each mini camp focuses on a few aspects that will help the fencer to develop a more complete and encompassing strategy and equip them with tools for improvement.
