We strongly encourage women to use this series to become certified in epee as there is a need for more certified female epee coaches. The clinics will progress from how to coach and cue correctly, to detailed information on all epee techniques, and finish with Teaching lessons and advanced high level Option lessons. At each session the lead coaches will briefly discuss epee technique while they demonstrate it. The coaches should then repeat the technique with their student or another coach. After trying it, pose questions or concerns to the leads before continuing to the next action. The lead coaches will also watch the attendees work on the action, and then give general feedback to the group as a whole. This will be a working clinic with as much doing as possible. "
