More than one-third of adults aged 65 and older injure themselves by falling each year. Those who fall once are two to three times more likely to fall again. But balance is a learned skill, and falls can be actively prevented. This class will teach you what exercises work best to maintain stability by strengthening your body's natural fall prevention systems. What is the number one reason for falls? Come join Chris to find out!

The Olympic sport of fencing demands a blend of tactical and strategic thought and a physical execution of those decisions. This has led many to describe the sport as "physical chess." Fencing also teaches balance and discipline and even more than this, it's fun! This class is for those new to fencing or those who would like to work on the basic skills. This class will cover basic rules, etiquette, basic footwork, attacks and defenses. Classes will consist of warm up time, footwork time, group lesson and bouting. All equipment is provided.
