Learn to Fence

Never fenced, but always wanted to try? This is your chance! We offer introductory courses at several locations throughout the area, and at the club. Below is the list of upcoming class offerings.

We offer introductory courses in both foil and epee (two different weapons in fencing). Epees are slightly heavier than foils, so the minimum recommended age for epee classes is 10 years (or 4th grade). Foil classes are recommended for students aged 8 or older. Specific classes may have other age restrictions. Please see individual courses.

Girls and boys are both welcome, as are adults! Adults (over the age of approximately 20) generally find epee more appealing. Call to chat about why!

The introductory courses are intended for those with no prior fencing experience. However, this course may be repeated, if desired.
