The course is offered through MSU's Extended University, so community members are welcome to audit the course. MSU students can enroll for undergraduate credit. Michael and Kirsten Holland, who have been teaching fencing at MSU for several years, said their class roster regularly includes members of the community.
The course is held Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:10 to 4:30, Aug. 27 through Dec. 5 in the SOB Barn at MSU. No previous fencing experience is required, and equipment is provided. The cost is $195 for 20 classes.
Holland said the course is appropriate for anyone, and encourages exploration of tactical advantages of all body types, as well as the development of strategy and mental flexibility.

Registration deadline is Aug. 20, though students are encouraged to register early due to limited class size.
