in Westfield

Our West Springfield classes are administered through the Westfield Parks and Recreation department. Our classes in Westfield are focused on introductory classes. 

New to fencing? You'll have a great time learning the basics in our Introduction to Fencing courses, where we teach you the basics of the game, from movement, to etiquette and safety, to basic tactics and techniques. This course runs for six sessions. We offer both youth and teen/adult classes (and yes, we welcome new adult learners!)

Students who are interested in pursuing fencing beyond the introductory class are invited to explore the opportunities we have in our West Springfield and Hadley locations.

Introduction to Fencing

In this active, fun class, students will learn the basic techniques and tactics of the modern sport (with ancient roots) of fencing. Starting with basic footwork and movement, students will progress quickly to basic blade work techniques and tactics for attacking, defending, and deceiving opponents. No prior experience is required. Participants need athletic shoes, long pants (sweatpants preferred), hair elastics (if necessary), and water bottles. Please carry in dry, clean athletic shoes to fence in, rather than wearing them in, if possible.
