Beginning Classes

We accept students with experience on an ad-hoc basis, joining ongoing classes, and we also have Fencing 2 classes whenever fencing 1 ends, same time and place.  (it’s really a 16 week program in two parts). If you are interested please contact us.

Give the gift of fencing fitness!  Contact us and we can prepare a gift certificate.

We suggest but do not require you purchase a fencing glove – more sanitary and seems to save lots of time not searching for just the right size glove in the loaner bag every week.  $10 cash or check to instructor.

First Class Information

Students should dress in comfortable, athletic clothing. T-shirts, sweat pants or track pants, and court shoes or cross trainers are preferred. Jeans will work if loose, and running shoes are acceptable. We recommend short sleeved shirts for comfort. No shorts, no sandals.

All equipment is provided. A fencing glove is provided to keep as part of the beginning class tuition.

Students under the age of 18 will require a parent or guardian signature on the registration and consent form. We can email a copy. Then, we need a signed USFA form (we pay the $10 fee) Also, please do this county consent form for times when we do programs through the county. Just 3 forms for you to do and us to track… no sweat.

Registration can be done by email as late as the night before the first class, but our kids classes usually fill before then.
