New to fencing?  This program is for you.  Starting from the basics, we will take you through the rules of the sport, basic movement, attacking & defending and start to develop your tactical game.  The program includes warm-up, conditioning & coordination exercises, technical work and plenty of sparring with each other.  Coaches and instructors will guide you through how to fence successfully.

This program is currently offered twice per week with the option to attend one or both weekly sessions.  Due to Coronavirus restrictions, the Center will not have any rental gear available.  All students must provide their own fencing gear.  For those new to the sport, a starter kit costs around $170.  We will coordinate your kit for you either on your first day or class or prior to your start if your prefer.

Students age 12 & up are welcome into this program.  For those under the age of 12, we offer a Youth Development Program (see below).
