Cote Du Golfe School Of Fencing
Fencing • Heating and CoolingIs this your business?
Do you want to keep physically fit and mentally sharp? Are you interested in history? If so, traditional fencing may be the ideal activity for you. I teach the European art of swordsmanship as a martial art, rather than the modern sport, within a living tradition of instruction that has been relatively unchanged since the 1800s. I have nearly two decades of fencing background, and I am a certified instructor in the classical French school of fencing by the Martinez Academy of Arms in New York City. I teach all levels, ages 13 and up in Southwest Florida (Naples and Ft Myers).
My 13 yr old daughter has learned a great deal and looks forward to fencing classes with Instructor Hogg. Initially, she tried French instruction. Mr. Hogg soon noted she was better suited to Italian, and continues improving with each session. Students are always challenged to build upon and sharpen their skills through personalized attention to detail. Mr. Hogg expertly manages class time while pairing students up for different drills. It's a pleasure to watch them develop their swordsmanship while incorporating discipline and respect in the salon!
Fantastic school! I look forward to my next visit with Instructor Hogg.
This is one of the few places in Southern FL where you can learn Fencing as a martial art. This traditional approach comes from a direct lineage of fencing knowledge transmitted through Maestro Ramon Martinez of the Martinez Academy. Instructor Hogg is a valuable resource if you'd like to learn the old ways of the sword!
