The Riverbank Community Center is the location for our Beginners Fencing Classes, serving students from
Riverbank, Modesto, Escalon, Oakdale and nearby towns in California's Central Valley.
These are the beginners classes for all ages, from 6 to 106! Come and learn the basics of the modern
sport with professional fencing coaches. You'll get to try fencing in full fencing gear. We use actual
competition-quality fencing epees and electronic scoring equipment in every class!
Classes are limited to 16. Two coaches work with students in every class.
Location: Riverbank Community Center, 3600 Santa Fe, Riverbank, CA 95367
The facility is well lit, warm, with high ceiling and the parking lot in the back. The spacious room can
