How to start

If you would like to learn fencing with us, come before the beginning of any class, and let us know that you'd like to try fencing. If we have the room, you'd be welcome to join the class, as our guest, free of charge, to see for yourself what the fencing trainig is like.

Come ready to exercise. We have all the gear for you - all we ask from you is T-shirt, long athletic or sweat pants, crew- or knee-high socks, and sneakers.

If you like the class, and with coaches approval, you can then sign up for one of our monthly classes and training programs.

It's a modern sport with romantic flair

Fencing is a uniquely classical sport. It has a history, drama, romance, style, art, plus all of the advantages of an active, physically demanding activity. Mentally it is mind consuming, allowing not a moment’s break. A far cry from the choreographed bouts portrayed on film, the sport of fencing is dynamic, fast, and athletic.

There are many benefits to participating in fencing whether as a youth or as an adult. At any age, fencing teaches good sportsmanship and self-discipline. Fencers learn to compete independently as well as for a team; they learn to enjoy winning and to learn from defeats, while becoming physically fit and healthy; and, most importantly, they learn to make complex decisions, analyze problems, and think fast. These ideals help fencers reach their potential in many areas other than fencing.
