What happens at class?

Students begin class with some light fencing and conditioning. We then move on to footwork, then blade work.  They class ends with games and open fencing.

Your First Lesson

When coming to your free introductory lesson, Please schedule here with a coach.  You will get a lesson on the fundamentals of footwork and blade work.  This will prepare you for group classes and if you aren't ready there is still the option of 'switch lessons'.

Children Under 7

Group classes are recommended for ages 7 and up, but if you have a child 5-6 years old; we can do private lessons.  This is for the comfort and safety of the fencers and coaches.   When your fencer is ready, we can move them to group classes.

Switch Lessons

All students in Beginner and Advanced classes have the option to switch a group class for a private lesson once per month. This lesson functions exactly like a normal private lesson, and is a great opportunity for young fencers to drill any weaknesses, or get caught up on any missed instruction. These switch lessons are also good for your scheduling as it gives you the ability to have a half-time lesson once per month.


Group Introductory Class

Group introductory classes are a great way to get your group of friends or family involved in fencing together. We are able to schedule these classes on Saturdays from 1:00pm to 2:30pm. Please contact us directly here at least 2 weeks in advance of when you would like to schedule the class. We will attempt to work with your schedule as best as we can. We request all participants be at least 7 years old. We can accommodate up to 6 fencers per class. During this class, all fencers will be taught how to do basic footwork, cuts, parries, and ripostes, with some light fencing at the end. We request a $15 donation per participant for the afternoon. All fencers will be required to sign or have a waiver signed for them by a legal guardian before fencing. All gear will be provided by the club, just arrive in exercise clothes and ready to learn!
