The facility is well lit, air-conditioned year around, with parking lot right outside the front door. There is also a great park outside, with a pond,
playground, and BBQ/picnic area. Our training room is built for dancing, and has one of teh best floors we have ever fenced on. One of the walls is
covered with mirror, floor-to-ceiling! The training room can easily accomodate 10 fencers for footwork and drills, and 3 electronic-equipped fencing
strips. Friends and family members are welcome to stay in and watch the class.

Class fee: Due by the first calendar day of the month. The fee covers the scheduled classes in a given month. The schedule is always
known before the beginning of the month, and it is printed with your fees payment receipt. Please note that the number of classes
in a month may differ a bit from month to month, due to different number of days in different months, and due to federal holidays and other
days when the Arnold Rue Center is closed. On average, however, students that come to class twice a week, may expect 8 classes a month.
Limited (one class/week): $90/month
This is a light training program for those with other activities that get in the way schedule-wise. Select any one day of the week,
so you can fence, and develop with the same group of peers.
Regular (two classes/week): $135/month
This is the basic program that fits most of our members. You select two days a week, preferably either Tue/Fri, or Wed/Sat, so you can
keep (fencing and learning with) the same group of peers.
Unlimited (up to 4 classes/week): $215/month
This is the unlimited option that gives you the access to all of our fencing classes and trainings (for your age group), and the priority
in equipment repair and in scheduling private lessons. This is the option for those with competitive aspirations.
Prerequisits: None, besides being healthy enough (and eager) for vigorous exercise (please note that we have wheelchair fencing program, too).
Equipment: We provide all the fencing equipment; Our students can use club's equipment in classes and trainings for as long as they want.
All we ask from you is to come in T-shirt, athletic pants or warmups, covering whole leg (i.e. no shorts), and sneakers. Your clothing needs to be
clean, with no tears or holes (in fencing the rip can catch the epee's point, so its a safety concern). We'll also ask you to wear socks which are
long enough that the skin between the sock and the leg is not exposed. All boys and men must wear athletic cup, the same kind as used in biking or baseball.
To sign up: Come to the front desk of the Arnold Rue Community Center (5758 Lorraine Ave), or to the Stockton's Parks and Recreation office at the Main Library.
