What is Sabre Fencing

The Olympic Sabre evolved from the French and Italian dueling sabres popularly used in the 19th centuries. In modern times, sabre fencing is an intense, high energy sport where the idea is to master timing and distance to hit your opponent before being hit. 
Fencing, formerly reserved for the elite, upper class, has become a fast growing sport available to anyone willing to better themselves and become more.   

Fencing can help clear the mind, reduce stress, and help you think in the moment.  Physical strength, agility, and flexibility will come naturally as well.

At Sabre Escrime of Pasadena, we take these concepts to heart by utilizing techniques that enhance hand-eye coordination, speed of thought, muscle memory, as well as general fitness.


Our instructors have learned from a myriad of coaches from across the country and bring those skills to help teach students here in Pasadena. Each of our coaches has around a decade of experience in fencing each.
