Rivington Park is pleased to invite NW sabreurs to join our first Sabre Development Camp led by Mr Dmitri Lapkes.  Dmitri has competed at 4 Olympic Games and been ranked at the very pinnacle of international mens sabre for 20 years.   He has worked as a coach for the National Belarus Senior, Junior and Cadet sabre squads and as personal coach to some of the top sabreurs in the world.

Dmitri is working with James Williams to deliver a two day Senior Sabre training camp on the 12th and 13th April 2014.  This will be attended by some of GBR elite sabreurs and places are limited to 40 with over half already filled.

The youth development camp runs on Mon 14th and Tues 15th April and will also be led by Dmitri.  This is suitable for keen sabreurs aged 10-15 who have been fencing for a year or more.  This will be age appropriate and tailored to your personal training goals.
